1: The king rejoices in your strength, Yahweh! How greatly he rejoices in your salvation! 2: You have given him his heart's desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah. 3: For you meet him with the blessings of goodness. You set a crown of fine gold on his head. 4: He asked life of you, you gave it to him, even length of days forever and ever. 5: His glory is great in your salvation. You lay honor and majesty on him. 6: For you make him most blessed forever. You make him glad with joy in your presence. 7: For the king trusts in Yahweh. Through the loving kindness of the Most High, he shall not be moved. 8: Your hand will find out all of your enemies. Your right hand will find out those who hate you. 9: You will make them as a fiery furnace in the time of your anger. Yahweh will swallow them up in his wrath. The fire shall devour them. 10: You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from among the children of men. 11: For they intended evil against you. They plotted evil against you which cannot succeed. 12: For you will make them turn their back, when you aim drawn bows at their face. 13: Be exalted, Yahweh, in your strength, so we will sing and praise your power. Psalm 22 For the Chief Musician; set to "The Doe of the Morning." A Psalm by David.
