Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. Jehovah, in Thy strength is the king joyful, In Thy salvation how greatly he rejoiceth. 1 O LORD, the king rejoices in your strength. How great is his joy in the victories you give!
2 The desire of his heart Thou gavest to him, And the request of his lips Thou hast not withheld. Selah. 2 You have granted him the desire of his heart and have not withheld the request of his lips. "Selah"
3 For Thou puttest before him blessings of goodness, Thou settest on his head a crown of fine gold. 3 You welcomed him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
4 Life he hath asked from Thee, Thou hast given to him -- length of days, Age-during -- and for ever. 4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him-- length of days, for ever and ever.
5 Great [is] his honour in Thy salvation, Honour and majesty Thou placest on him. 5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
6 For Thou makest him blessings for ever, Thou dost cause him to rejoice 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 is trusting in Jehovah, And in the kindness of the Most High He is not 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 cometh to all Thine enemies, Thy right hand doth find Thy haters. 8 Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies; your right hand will seize your foes.
9 Thou makest them as a furnace of fire, At the time of Thy presence. Jehovah in His anger doth swallow them, And fire doth 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 from earth Thou destroyest, And their seed from the sons of men. 10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from mankind.
11 For they stretched out against Thee evil, They devised a wicked device, they prevail not, 11 Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed;
12 For Thou makest them a butt, When Thy strings Thou preparest against their faces. 12 for you will make them turn their backs when you aim at them with drawn bow.
13 Be Thou exalted, O Jehovah in, Thy strength, We sing and we praise Thy might! 13 Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength; we will sing and praise your might.
