Psalm 21 The King’s Victory For the choir director. A Davidic psalm. 21 1Lord, the king finds joy in Your strength. How greatly he rejoices in Your victory! 2You have given him his heart’s desire and have not denied the request of his lips.Selah 3For You meet him with rich blessings; You place a crown of pure gold on his head. 4He asked You for life, and You gave it to him— length of days forever and ever. 5His glory is great through Your victory; You confer majesty and splendor on him. 6You give him blessings forever; You cheer him with joy in Your presence. 7For the king relies on the Lord; through the faithful love of the Most High he is not shaken. 8Your hand will capture all your enemies; your right hand will seize those who hate you. 9You will make them burn like a fiery furnace when you appear; the Lord will engulf them in His wrath, and fire will devour them. 10You will wipe their descendants from the earth and their offspring from the human race. 11Though they intend to harm[F] you and devise a wicked plan, they will not prevail. 12Instead, you will put them to flight when you aim your bow[G] at their faces. 13Be exalted, Lord, in Your strength; we will sing and praise Your might.
