The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} The king shall joy in thy strength, Jehovah; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice. 1 O LORD, the king rejoices in your strength. How great is his joy in the victories you give!
2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah. 2 You have granted him the desire of his heart and have not withheld the request of his lips. "Selah"
3 For thou hast met him with the blessings of goodness; thou hast set a crown of pure gold on his head. 3 You welcomed him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
4 He asked life of thee; thou gavest [it] him, length of days for ever and ever. 4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him-- length of days, for ever and ever.
5 His glory is great through thy salvation; majesty and splendour hast thou laid upon him. 5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
6 For thou hast made him to be blessings for ever; thou hast filled him with joy by thy countenance. 6 Surely you have granted him eternal blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
7 For the king confideth in Jehovah: and through the loving-kindness of the Most High he shall not be moved. 7 For the king trusts in the LORD; through the unfailing love of the Most High he will not be shaken.
8 Thy hand shall find out all thine enemies; thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. 8 Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies; your right hand will seize your foes.
9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thy presence; Jehovah shall swallow them up in his anger, and the fire shall devour them: 9 At the time of your appearing you will make them like a fiery furnace. In his wrath the LORD will swallow them up, and his fire will consume them.
10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men. 10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from mankind.
11 For they intended evil against thee; they imagined a mischievous device, which they could not execute. 11 Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed;
12 For thou wilt make them turn their back; thou wilt make ready thy bowstring against their face. 12 for you will make them turn their backs when you aim at them with drawn bow.
13 Be thou exalted, Jehovah, in thine own strength: we will sing and celebrate thy power. 13 Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength; we will sing and praise your might.
