141Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; 2steadfast love and faithfulness go before you.
Blessed are the people who know 3the festal shout, who walk, O LORD, in 4the light of your face,
who exult in your 5name all the day and in your righteousness are 6exalted.
For you are 7the glory of their strength; by your favor our 8horn is exalted.
For our 9shield belongs to the LORD, our king to 10the Holy One of Israel.
1911Of old you spoke in a vision to your godly one,a and said: "I have 12granted help to one who is 13mighty; I have exalted one 14chosen from the people.
2015I have found David, my servant; with my holy oil I have 16anointed him,
so that my 17hand shall be established with him; my arm also shall strengthen him.
The enemy shall not outwit him; 18the wicked shall not humble him.
I will 19crush his foes before him and strike down those who hate him.
My 20faithfulness and my 21steadfast love shall be with him, and in my name shall his 22horn be exalted.
