To the Overcomer,
A Psalm of David.

1The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy saving health how greatly shall he rejoice! 2Thou hast given him his heart’s desire and hast not withheld the request of his lips. Selah. 3For thou givest him beforehand the blessings of goodness; thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head. 4He asked life of thee, and thou didst give him length of days for ever and ever. 5His glory is great in thy saving health; honour and beauty hast thou laid upon him. 6For thou hast made him most blessed for ever; thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.

7For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved. 8Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies; thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. 9Thou 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. 10Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth and their seed from among the children of men. 11For they intended evil against thee; they imagined a wicked device, but they did not prevail. 12Therefore shalt thou separate them; thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them. 13Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy valour.
