Psalm 21

Psalm 21

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Lord, the king is filled with joy because you are strong.
    How great is his joy because you help him win his battles!
You have given him what his heart wished for.
    You haven’t kept back from him what his lips asked for.
You came to greet him with rich blessings.
    You placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
He asked you for life, and you gave it to him.
    You promised him days that would never end.
His glory is great because you helped him win his battles.
    You have honored him with glory and majesty.
You have given him blessings that will never end.
    You have made him glad and joyful because you are with him.

The king trusts in the Lord.
    The faithful love of the Most High God
    will keep the king secure.

You, the king, will capture all your enemies.
    Your right hand will take hold of them.
When you appear for battle,
    you will burn them up like they were in a flaming furnace.
The Lord will swallow them up in his great anger.
    His fire will burn them up.
10 You will wipe their children from the face of the earth.
    You will remove them from the human race.
11 Your enemies make evil plans against you.
    They think up evil things to do. But they can’t succeed.
12 You will make them turn their backs and run away
    when you aim your arrows at them.

13 Lord, may you be honored because you are strong.
    We will sing and praise your might.

诗篇 21

颂赞胜利

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1耶和华啊,
君王因你的能力而欢欣,
因你的拯救而雀跃。
你满足了他的心愿,
未曾拒绝他的请求。(细拉)
你赐给他丰盛的祝福,
给他戴上纯金的冠冕。
他向你祈求长寿,
你就赐给他永生。
你的救助带给他无限荣耀,
你赐给他尊荣和威严。
你给他的祝福永无穷尽,
你的同在使他充满喜乐。
君王信靠耶和华,
靠着至高者的慈爱必不动摇。

耶和华啊,
你的手必寻索你的敌人,
你用右手搜出所有恨你的人。
你一出现,
他们便像身在火炉中,
你在烈怒中吞灭他们,
你的烈火烧灭他们。
10 你必从世上铲除他们的子孙,
从人间灭绝他们的后裔。
11 他们虽然用阴谋诡计对抗你,
却不能成功。
12 你必弯弓搭箭瞄准他们,
使他们掉头逃跑。
13 耶和华啊,愿你彰显大能,受人尊崇!
我们要歌颂、赞美你的权能。
