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.

Psalm 21 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764), A Psalm H4210 of David H1732.» The king H4428 shall joy H8055 (8799) in thy strength H5797, O LORD H3068; and in thy salvation H3444 how greatly H3966 shall he rejoice H1523 (8799)!
[2] Thou hast given H5414 (8804) him his heart’s H3820 desire H8378, and hast not withholden H4513 (8804) the request H782 of his lips H8193. Selah H5542.
[3] For thou preventest H6923 (8762) him with the blessings H1293 of goodness H2896: thou settest H7896 (8799) a crown H5850 of pure gold H6337 on his head H7218.
[4] He asked H7592 (8804) life H2416 of thee, [and] thou gavest H5414 (8804) [it] him, [even] length H753 of days H3117 for ever H5769 and ever H5703.
[5] His glory H3519 [is] great H1419 in thy salvation H3444: honour H1935 and majesty H1926 hast thou laid H7737 (8762) upon him.
[6] For thou hast made H7896 (8799) him most blessed H1293 for ever H5703: thou hast made H2302 (8762) him exceeding glad H8057 with thy countenance H6440.
[7] For the king H4428 trusteth H982 (8802) in the LORD H3068, and through the mercy H2617 of the most High H5945 he shall not be moved H4131 (8735).
[8] Thine hand H3027 shall find out H4672 (8799) all thine enemies H341 (8802): thy right hand H3225 shall find out H4672 (8799) those that hate H8130 (8802) thee.
[9] Thou shalt make H7896 (8799) them as a fiery H784 oven H8574 in the time H6256 of thine anger H6440: the LORD H3068 shall swallow them up H1104 (8762) in his wrath H639, and the fire H784 shall devour H398 (8799) them.
[10] Their fruit H6529 shalt thou destroy H6 (8762) from the earth H776, and their seed H2233 from among the children H1121 of men H120.
[11] For they intended H5186 (8804) evil H7451 against thee: they imagined H2803 (8804) a mischievous device H4209, [which] they are not able H3201 (8799) [to perform].
[12] Therefore shalt thou make H7896 (8799) them turn their back H7926, [when] thou shalt make ready H3559 (8787) [thine arrows] upon thy strings H4340 against the face H6440 of them.
[13] Be thou exalted H7311 (8798), LORD H3068, in thine own strength H5797: [so] will we sing H7891 (8799) and praise H2167 (8762) thy power H1369.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 21 (YLT)

[1] Jehovah, in Thy strength is the king joyful, In Thy salvation how greatly he rejoiceth.
[2] The desire of his heart Thou gavest to him, And the request of his lips Thou hast not withheld. Selah.
[3] For Thou puttest before him blessings of goodness, Thou settest on his head a crown of fine gold.
[4] Life he hath asked from Thee, Thou hast given to him-length of days, Age-during-and for ever.
[5] Great is his honour in Thy salvation, Honour and majesty Thou placest on him.
[6] For Thou makest him blessings for ever, Thou dost cause him to rejoice with joy, By Thy countenance.
[7] For the king is trusting in Jehovah, And in the kindness of the Most High He is not moved.
[8] Thy hand cometh to all Thine enemies, Thy right hand doth find Thy haters.
[9] Thou makest them as a furnace of fire, At the time of Thy presence. Jehovah in His anger doth swallow them, And fire doth devour them.
[10] Their fruit from earth Thou destroyest, And their seed from the sons of men.
[11] For they stretched out against Thee evil, They devised a wicked device, they prevail not,
[12] For Thou makest them a butt, When Thy strings Thou preparest against their faces.
[13] Be Thou exalted, O Jehovah in, Thy strength, We sing and we praise Thy might!
