Psalm 21
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. A PSALM OF DAVID. YHWH, the king is joyful in Your strength, "" How greatly he rejoices in Your salvation.

2You gave the desire of his heart to him, "" And You have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah.

3For You put blessings of goodness before him, "" You set a crown of fine gold on his head.

4He has asked for life from You, "" You have given length of days to him, "" For all time and forever.

5Great [is] his glory in Your salvation, "" You place splendor and majesty on him.

6For You make him blessings forever, "" You cause him to rejoice with joy, "" By Your countenance.

7For the king is trusting in YHWH, "" And in the kindness of the Most High he is not moved.

8Your hand comes to all Your enemies, "" Your right hand finds Your haters.

9You make them as a furnace of fire, "" At the time of Your presence. YHWH swallows them in His anger, "" And fire devours them.

10You destroy their fruit from earth, "" And their seed from the sons of men.

11For they stretched out evil against You, "" They devised a wicked scheme, they do not prevail,

12For You make them turn their back, "" When You prepare Your strings against their faces.

13Be exalted, O YHWH, in Your strength, "" We sing and we praise Your might!
