- [To the chiefe Musician.
A Psalme of Dauid.]
- The King shall ioy in thy strength, O Lord: and in thy saluation how greatly shall he reioyce?
- Thou hast giuen him his hearts desire;
and hast not withholden the request of his lips.
- For thou preuentest him with the blessings of goodnesse: thou settest a Crowne of pure gold on his head.
- He asked life of thee, and thou gauest it him, euen length of dayes for euer and euer.
- His glory is great in thy saluation: honour and Maiestie hast thou layde vpon him.
- For thou hast made him most blessed for euer: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
- For the King trusteth in the Lord, and through the mercy of the most High, he shall not be moued.
- Thine hand shall finde out all thine enemies, thy right hand shal finde out those that hate thee.
- Thou shalt make them as a fiery ouen in the time of thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them vp in his wrath, and the fire shall deuoure them.
- Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
- For they intended euill against thee: they imagined a mischieuous deuice, which they are not able to performe.
- Therefore shalt thou make them turne their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrowes vpon thy strings, against the face of them.
- Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine owne strength: so will wee sing, aud praise thy power.
