Psalms 21:1-7

Psalm 21In Hebrew texts 21:1-13 is numbered 21:2-14.

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.21:2 The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here.

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.
