The King Rejoices in Your Strength!

1The king shall joy in your strength, O LORD; and in your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice! 2You have given him his heart's desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah. 3For you prevent him with the blessings of goodness: you set a crown of pure gold on his head. 4He asked life of you, and you gave it him, even length of days for ever and ever. 5His glory is great in your salvation: honor and majesty have you laid on him. 6For you have made him most blessed for ever: you have made him exceeding glad with your countenance. 7For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved. 8Your hand shall find out all your enemies: your right hand shall find out those that hate you. 9You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them. 10Their fruit shall you destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men. 11For they intended evil against you: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform. 12Therefore shall you make them turn their back, when you shall make ready your arrows on your strings against the face of them. 13Be you exalted, LORD, in your own strength: so will we sing and praise your power.
