Psalms - Chapter 21 | New King James Version

  • 1. To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The king shall have joy in Your strength, O Lord; And in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
  • 2. You have given him his heart's desire, And have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
  • 3. For You meet him with the blessings of goodness; You set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
  • 4. He asked life from You, and You gave it to him-- Length of days forever and ever.
  • 5. His glory is great in Your salvation; Honor and majesty You have placed upon him.
  • 6. For You have made him most blessed forever; You have made him exceedingly glad with Your presence.
  • 7. For the king trusts in the Lord, And through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.
  • 8. Your hand will find all Your enemies; Your right hand will find those who hate You.
  • 9. You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger; The Lord shall swallow them up in His wrath, And the fire shall devour them.
  • 10. Their offspring You shall destroy from the earth, And their descendants from among the sons of men.
  • 11. For they intended evil against You; They devised a plot which they are not able to perform.
  • 12. Therefore You will make them turn their back; You will make ready Your arrows on Your string toward their faces.
  • 13. Be exalted, O Lord, in Your own strength! We will sing and praise Your power.
