Psalm 2127

For the music director; a psalm of David.

21:1 O Lord, the king rejoices in the strength you give;1

he takes great delight in the deliverance you provide.2

21:2 You grant3 him his heart’s desire;

you do not refuse his request.4


21:3 For you bring him5 rich6 blessings;7

you place a golden crown on his head.

21:4 He asked you to sustain his life,8

and you have granted him long life and an enduring dynasty.9

21:5 Your deliverance brings him great honor;10

you give him majestic splendor.11

21:6 For you grant him lasting blessings;

you give him great joy by allowing him into your presence.12

21:7 For the king trusts13 in the Lord,

and because of the sovereign Lord’s14 faithfulness he is not upended.15

21:8 You16 prevail over17 all your enemies;

your power is too great for those who hate you.18

21:9 You burn them up like a fiery furnace19 when you appear;20

the Lord angrily devours them;21

the fire consumes them.

21:10 You destroy their offspring22 from the earth,

their descendants23 from among the human race.24

21:11 Yes,25 they intend to do you harm;26

they dream up a scheme,27 but they do not succeed.28

21:12 For you make them retreat29

when you shoot your arrows at them.30

21:13 Rise up, O Lord, in strength!31

We will sing and praise32 your power!
