Psalm 21

Psalm 21


For the choir director. A psalm of David.

Lord, the king finds joy in your strength.

How greatly he rejoices in your victory!f

You have given him his heart’s desireg

and have not denied the request of his lips.h


For you meet him with rich blessings;

you place a crown of pure gold on his head.i

He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—

length of days forever and ever.j

His glory is great through your victory;

you confer majesty and splendor on him.k

You give him blessings forever;l

you cheer him with joy in your presence.m

For the king relies on the Lord;

through the faithful love of the Most High

he is not shaken.n

Your hand will capture all your enemies;

your right hand will seize those who hate you.o

You will make them burn

like a fiery furnace when you appear;

the Lord will engulf them in his wrath,

and fire will devour them.p

10 You will wipe their progeny from the earth

and their offspring from the human race.B,q

11 Though they intend to harmC you

and devise a wicked plan, they will not prevail.r

12 Instead, you will put them to flight

when you ready your bowstrings to shoot at them.s

13 Be exalted, Lord, in your strength;

we will sing and praise your might.t
