The first book of Psalms, song 21, New English Translation

Psalm 21

   For the music director; a psalm of David.
   1 O LORD, the king rejoices in the strength you give; he takes great delight in the deliverance you provide.
   2 You grant him his heart's desire; you do not refuse his request. (Selah)
   3 For you bring him rich blessings; you place a golden crown on his head.
   4 He asked you to sustain his life, and you have granted him long life and an enduring dynasty.
   5 Your deliverance brings him great honor; you give him majestic splendor.
   6 For you grant him lasting blessings; you give him great joy by allowing him into your presence.
   7 For the king trusts in the LORD, and because of the sovereign LORD's faithfulness he is not upended.
   8 You prevail over all your enemies; your power is too great for those who hate you.
   9 You burn them up like a fiery furnace when you appear; the LORD angrily devours them; the fire consumes them.
   10 You destroy their offspring from the earth, their descendants from among the human race.
   11 Yes, they intend to do you harm; they dream up a scheme, but they do not succeed.
   12 For you make them retreat when you shoot your arrows at them.
   13 Rise up, O LORD, in strength! We will sing and praise your power!
