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 splendor 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.

詩篇 21

頌讚勝利

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1耶和華啊,
君王因你的能力而歡欣,
因你的拯救而雀躍。
你滿足了他的心願,
未曾拒絕他的請求。(細拉)
你賜給他豐盛的祝福,
給他戴上純金的冠冕。
他向你祈求長壽,
你就賜給他永生。
你的救助帶給他無限榮耀,
你賜給他尊榮和威嚴。
你給他的祝福永無窮盡,
你的同在使他充滿喜樂。
君王信靠耶和華,
靠著至高者的慈愛必不動搖。

耶和華啊,
你的手必尋索你的敵人,
你用右手搜出所有恨你的人。
你一出現,
他們便像身在火爐中,
你在烈怒中吞滅他們,
你的烈火燒滅他們。
10 你必從世上剷除他們的子孫,
從人間滅絕他們的後裔。
11 他們雖然用陰謀詭計對抗你,
卻不能成功。
12 你必彎弓搭箭瞄準他們,
使他們掉頭逃跑。
13 耶和華啊,願你彰顯大能,受人尊崇!
我們要歌頌、讚美你的權能。
