Salme 21

Lovsang efter sejren

1Til korlederen: En sang af David.

Herre, kongen glæder sig over din magt,
    han råber af fryd over din sejr.
Du har opfyldt hans hjertes ønske,
    ikke nægtet ham, hvad han bad dig om.
Du kom til ham med rige gaver.
    Du satte en gylden krone på hans hoved.
Han bad om din velsignelse over sit liv,
    og du lovede ham et varigt dynasti.
Du gav ham sejre og berømmelse,
    du tildelte ham ære og værdighed.
Din velsignelse følger ham altid,
    dit nærvær fylder ham med usigelig glæde.
Han stoler på Herren og skal aldrig snuble,
    for den Almægtiges trofaste nåde bevarer ham.

Du opsporer alle dine fjender,
    tilintetgør enhver, som hader dig.
10 Når du viser dig, brænder de op som i en ovn,
    du opsluger dem i vrede, lader ild fortære dem.
11 Du fjerner deres børn fra jordens overflade,
    deres slægt dør fuldstændig ud.
12 Selv om de sætter sig op imod dig,
    vil deres onde planer ikke lykkes.
13 De vender om og flygter,
    når du sender dine pile.

14 Rejs dig, Herre, i din vældige styrke.
    Med sang og spil vil vi lovprise din magt.

Psalm 21

Psalm 21[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The king rejoices in your strength, Lord.
    How great is his joy in the victories you give!

You have granted him his heart’s desire
    and have not withheld the request of his lips.[b]
You came to greet him with rich blessings
    and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
He asked you for life, and you gave it to him –
    length of days, for ever and ever.
Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;
    you have bestowed on him splendour and majesty.
Surely you have granted him unending blessings
    and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
For the king trusts in the Lord;
    through the unfailing love of the Most High
    he will not be shaken.

Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies;
    your right hand will seize your foes.
When you appear for battle,
    you will burn them up as in a blazing furnace.
The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath,
    and his fire will consume them.
10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth,
    their posterity from mankind.
11 Though they plot evil against you
    and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed.
12 You will make them turn their backs
    when you aim at them with drawn bow.

13 Be exalted in your strength, Lord;
    we will sing and praise your might.
