Psalm 21:1-7

Praise for Deliverance.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

O Lord, in Your strength the king will be glad,
And in Your [a]salvation how greatly he will rejoice!
You have given him his heart’s desire,
And You have not withheld the request of his lips. [b]Selah.
For You meet him with the blessings of good things;
You set a crown of fine gold on his head.
He asked life of You,
You gave it to him,
Length of days forever and ever.
His glory is great through Your [c]salvation,
Splendor and majesty You place upon him.
For You make him [d]most blessed forever;
You make him joyful with gladness in Your presence.

For the king trusts in the Lord,
And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he will not be shaken.
