Book of Tehillim (Psalms): Chapter 21

21:1 The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!

21:2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.

21:3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.

21:4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.

21:5 His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.

21:6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.

21:7 For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.

21:8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.

21:9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

21:10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.

21:11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.

21:12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.

21:13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.
