Psalm 21
New Living Translation Par ▾ 

For the choir director: A psalm of David.

1How the king rejoices in your strength, O LORD!

He shouts with joy because you give him victory.

2For you have given him his heart’s desire;

you have withheld nothing he requested.


3You welcomed him back with success and prosperity.

You placed a crown of finest gold on his head.

4He asked you to preserve his life,

and you granted his request.

The days of his life stretch on forever.

5Your victory brings him great honor,

and you have clothed him with splendor and majesty.

6You have endowed him with eternal blessings

and given him the joy of your presence.

7For the king trusts in the LORD.

The unfailing love of the Most High will keep him from stumbling.

8You will capture all your enemies.

Your strong right hand will seize all who hate you.

9You will throw them in a flaming furnace

when you appear.

The LORD will consume them in his anger;

fire will devour them.

10You will wipe their children from the face of the earth;

they will never have descendants.

11Although they plot against you,

their evil schemes will never succeed.

12For they will turn and run

when they see your arrows aimed at them.

13Rise up, O LORD, in all your power.

With music and singing we celebrate your mighty acts.
