1The king rejoices in your strength, O Yahweh! How greatly he rejoices in your deliverance!
2You have given him his heart’s desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah.
3For you meet him with the blessings of goodness. You set a crown of fine gold on his head.
4He asked you for life; you gave it to him, even length of days forever and ever.
5His glory is great through your deliverance. You place splendor and majesty upon him.
6For you grant him blessings forever. You make him glad with joy by your presence.
7For the king trusts in Yahweh. And by the covenant faithfulness of the Most High, he will not be shaken.
8Your hand will find all of your enemies. Your right hand will find those who hate you.
9You will make them like a fiery furnace at the time of your presence. Yahweh will swallow them up in his anger. The fire will devour them.
10You will destroy their offspring from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
11For they intended evil against you. They plotted wicked devices against you that will not succeed.
12For you will make them turn their shoulder when you aim drawn bows at their faces.
13Be exalted, O Yahweh, in your strength, we will sing and make music about your might
