Psalm 21
Good News Translation

Praise for Victory+

1The king is glad, O Lord, because you gave him strength;

he rejoices because you made him victorious.

2You have given him his heart's desire;

you have answered his request.

3You came to him with great blessings

and set a crown of gold on his head.

4He asked for life, and you gave it,

a long and lasting life.

5His glory is great because of your help;

you have given him fame and majesty.

6Your blessings are with him forever,

and your presence fills him with joy.

7The king trusts in the Lord Almighty;

and because of the Lord's constant love

he will always be secure.

8The king will capture all his enemies;

he will capture everyone who hates him.

9He will destroy them like a blazing fire

when he appears.

The Lord will devour them in his anger,

and fire will consume them.

10None of their descendants will survive;

the king will kill them all.

11They make their plans, and plot against him,

but they will not succeed.

12He will shoot his arrows at them

and make them turn and run.

13We praise you, Lord, for your great strength!

We will sing and praise your power.
