Psalm 21 Translation


1 For the music director.  A psalm of David.

2  O Yahweh, in your protection the king rejoices
In Your salvation how greatly he rejoices

3 You have given him his heart’s longing

And you have not withheld the desire of his lips

4 For you have met him with blessings of good things

You have placed a crown of pure gold on his head

5 He asked for life from You; You gave it to him

Length of days forever and ever

6 His glory is great through your salvation

Majesty and splendor You place on him

7 For you grant him lasting blessings

You make him glad in the joy of Your presence

8 For the king trusts in Yahweh

And through the covenant love of the Most High he will not be made to falter

9 Your hand finds all your enemies

Your right hand finds those who hate You

10 You make them as a fiery furnace in the time of your anger

Yahweh will swallow them and fire consume them in His anger

11 You will destroy their offspring from the earth

Their descendents from mankind

12 Though they intend to do you harm

They devise an evil plan

They will not succeed

13 For you make them retreat when you load your bowstring to shoot at them

14 Be exulted, Yahweh, in your strength

We will sing and praise Your power
