Psalms 21 (asv)

Psalms 21 (asv)

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

21:1The king shall joy in thy strength, O Jehovah;

And in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!

21:2Thou hast given him his heart's desire,

And hast not withholden the request of his lips.


21:3For thou meetest him with the blessings of goodness:

Thou settest a crown of fine gold on his head.

21:4He asked life of thee, thou gavest it him,

Even length of days for ever and ever.

21:5His glory is great in thy salvation:

Honor and majesty dost thou lay upon him.

21:6For thou makest him most blessed for ever:

Thou makest him glad with joy in thy presence.

21:7For the king trusteth in Jehovah;

And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he shall not be moved.

21:8Thy hand will find out all thine enemies;

Thy right hand will find out those that hate thee.

21:9Thou wilt make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thine anger:

Jehovah will swallow them up in his wrath,

And the fire shall devour them.

21:10Their fruit wilt thou destroy from the earth,

And their seed from among the children of men.

21:11For they intended evil against thee;

They conceived a device which they are not able to perform.

21:12For thou wilt make them turn their back;

Thou wilt make ready with thy bowstrings against their face.

21:13Be thou exalted, O Jehovah, in thy strength:

So will we sing and praise thy power.
