Psalm 21To the chief singer. A psalm of Dawiḏ
1 The sovereign rejoices in Your strength, O יהוה; And how greatly he exults in Your deliverance!
You have given him the desire of his heart, And You have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah. 3
For You put before him the bireḵoth of goodness; You put
a crown of fine gold on his head. 4 He asked life from You, and You gave it
to him – Length of days forever and ever. 5 Through Your deliverance his
esteem is great; You have laid excellency and splendour on him. 6 For You have made him most baruḵ forever; You have made him glad with the joy of Your presence. 7 For the sovereign is trusting
in יהוה, And through the kindness
of the Most High he is not moved. 8 Your hand reaches all Your enemies; Your
right hand reaches those who hate You. 9 You make them as a furnace of
fire in the time of Your presence; יהוה swallows them up in His wrath, And fire consumes them. 10
You destroy their fruit from the earth, And their seed from among the sons of men. 11
For they held out evil against You; They devised a plot; they do not prevail. 12
For You make them turn their back, When You aim with Your bowstring toward their faces. 13
Be exalted, O יהוה, in Your strength! We sing
and we praise Your might.
