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 a 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 b 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;
c You have made him 1 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 2 moved.
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 3 descendants from among the sons of men. 11 For they intended evil against You;
They devised a plot which they are not able to d perform. 12 Therefore You will make them turn their back;
You will make ready Your arrows on Your string toward their faces.
Be exalted, O LORD, in Your own strength!
We will sing and praise Your power.
