Psalm 21 New American Standard Bible

Praise for Deliverance from the Enemy

21 O Lord , in Your strength the king will be glad , And in Your salvation how greatly he will rejoice ! 2  You have given him his heart's desire , And You have not withheld the request of his lips . Selah . 3  For You meet him with the blessings of good things ; You set a crown of fine gold on his head . 4  He asked life of You, You gave it to him, Length of days forever and ever . 5  His glory is great through Your salvation , Splendor and majesty You place upon him. 6  For You make him most blessed forever ; You make him joyful with gladness in Your presence .

7  For the king trusts in the Lord , And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he will not be shaken . 8  Your hand will find out all your enemies ; Your right hand will find out those who hate you. 9  You will make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger ; The Lord will swallow them up in His wrath , And fire will devour them. 10  Their offspring You will destroy from the earth , And their descendants from among the sons of men . 11  Though they intended evil against You And devised a plot , They will not succeed . 12  For You will make them turn their back ; You will aim with Your bowstrings at their faces . 13  Be exalted , O Lord , in Your strength ; We will sing and praise Your power .
