The King Rejoices in the Lord's Strength
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
211O Lord, in your zstrength the king rejoices,
and in your asalvation how greatly he exults!
2You have bgiven him his heart's desire
and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
3For you cmeet him with rich blessings;
you set da crown of efine gold upon his head.
4He asked life of you; you fgave it to him,
glength of days forever and ever.
5His hglory is great through your salvation;
isplendor and majesty you bestow on him.
6For you make him most blessed forever;1
you make him glad with the jjoy of your presence.
7For the king trusts in the Lord,
and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be kmoved.
8Your hand will lfind out all your enemies;
your right hand will find out those who hate you.
9You will make them as ma blazing oven
when you appear.
The Lord will swallow them up in his nwrath,
and ofire will consume them.
10You pwill destroy their qdescendants from the earth,
and their offspring from among the children of man.
11Though they plan evil against you,
though they rdevise mischief, they will not succeed.
12For you will put them sto flight;
you will taim at their faces with your bows.
13Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength!
We will sing and praise your power.
