Psalm 21 (WEBP)

[1] The king rejoices in your strength, Yahweh! How greatly he rejoices in your salvation!
[2] You have given him his heart’s desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah.
[3] For you meet him with the blessings of goodness. You set a crown of fine gold on his head.
[4] He asked life of you and you gave it to him, even length of days forever and ever.
[5] His glory is great in your salvation. You lay honor and majesty on him.
[6] For you make him most blessed forever. You make him glad with joy in your presence.
[7] For the king trusts in Yahweh. Through the loving kindness of the Most High, he shall not be moved.
[8] Your hand will find out all of your enemies. Your right hand will find out those who hate you.
[9] You will make them as a fiery furnace in the time of your anger. Yahweh will swallow them up in his wrath. The fire shall devour them.
[10] You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from among the children of men.
[11] For they intended evil against you. They plotted evil against you which cannot succeed.
[12] For you will make them turn their back, when you aim drawn bows at their face.
[13] Be exalted, Yahweh, in your strength, so we will sing and praise your power.
