Salmos 21

Al director musical. Salmo de David.

1En tu fuerza, Señor,
    se regocija el rey;
    ¡cuánto se alegra en tus victorias!
Le has concedido lo que su corazón desea;
    no le has negado lo que sus labios piden. Selah
Has salido a su encuentro con ricas bendiciones;
    lo has coronado con diadema de oro fino.
Te pidió vida, se la concediste:
    una vida larga y duradera.
Por tus victorias se acrecentó su gloria;
    lo revestiste de honor y majestad.
Has hecho de él manantial de bendiciones;
    tu presencia lo ha llenado de alegría.

El rey confía en el Señor,
    en el gran amor del Altísimo;
    por eso jamás caerá.

Tu mano alcanzará a todos tus enemigos;
    tu diestra alcanzará a los que te aborrecen.
Cuando tú, Señor, te manifiestes,
    los convertirás en un horno encendido.

En su ira los devorará el Señor;
    ¡un fuego los consumirá!
10 Borrarás de la tierra a su simiente;
    de entre los mortales, a su posteridad.
11 Aunque tramen hacerte daño
    y maquinen perversidades,
    ¡no se saldrán con la suya!
12 Porque tú los harás retroceder
    cuando tenses tu arco contra ellos.

13 Enaltécete, Señor, con tu poder,
    y con salmos celebraremos tus proezas.

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.
