Joy in the Salvation of Yahweh

1 aO Yahweh, [the] king will rejoice in your strength, and how greatly he will delight in your help.b 2 You have given him the desire of his heart, and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah 3 For you meet him [with] blessings of good [things]. You set on his head a crown of fine gold. 4 He asked life from you; you gave [it] to him-- length of days forever and ever. 5 His honor [is] great because of your help.c Splendor and majesty you have bestowed upon him. 6 For you set [on] him blessings forever. You make him glad with [the] joy [of] your presence. 7 Because the king trusts Yahweh, and through the steadfast loved of the Most High he shall not be moved. 8 Your hand will find all your enemies; your right hand will find those who hate you. 9 You will make them like your fiery furnace at the time of your appearance. Yahweh will swallow them in his wrath and fire will consume them. 10 You will destroy their {offspring}e from [the] earth, and their {descendants}f from among [the] children of humankind. 11 Though they have {plotted}g evil against you, [though] they have planned a scheme, they will not prevail. 12 For you will {turn them to flight};h you will aim [arrows] on your bowstrings at their faces. 13 Be exalted, O Yahweh, in your strength, and we sing and praise your power.
