Psalms Chapter 21 (Index)

001  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!

002  Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.

003  For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.

004  He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.

005  His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.

006  For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.

007  For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.

008  Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.

009  Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

010  Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.

011  For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.

012  Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.

013  Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.
