The first book of Psalms, song 21, Vulgate and King James Version

Psalm 21


   1 Magistro chori. PSALMUS. David.
   2 Domine, in virtute tua laetabitur rex et super salutare tuum exsultabit vehementer.
   3 Desiderium cordis eius tribuisti ei et voluntatem labiorum eius non denegasti.
   4 Quoniam praevenisti eum in benedictionibus dulcedinis; posuisti in capite eius coronam de auro purissimo.
   5 Vitam petiit a te, et tribuisti ei longitudinem dierum in saeculum et in saeculum saeculi.
   6 Magna est gloria eius in salutari tuo, magnificentiam et decorem impones super eum;
   7 quoniam pones eum benedictionem in saeculum saeculi, laetificabis eum in gaudio ante vultum tuum.
   8 Quoniam rex sperat in Domino et in misericordia Altissimi non commovebitur.
   9 Inveniet manus tua omnes inimicos tuos, dextera tua inveniet, qui te oderunt.
   10 Pones eos ut clibanum ignis in tempore vultus tui: Dominus in ira sua deglutiet eos, et devorabit eos ignis.
   11 Fructum eorum de terra perdes et semen eorum de filiis hominum.
   12 Quoniam intenderunt in te mala, cogitaverunt consilia: nihil potuerunt.
   13 Quoniam pones eos dorsum, arcus tuos tendes in vultum eorum.
   14 Exaltare, Domine, in virtute tua; cantabimus et psallemus virtutes tuas.

King James Version

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