4 He asked life of You, You gave it to him, Length of days forever 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 Your salvation, Splendor and majesty You place upon him. 5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
6 For You make him most blessed forever; You make him joyful with gladness in Your presence. 6 Surely you have granted him eternal blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.

9 You will make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger; The LORD will swallow them up in His wrath, And fire will 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 offspring You will destroy from the earth, And their descendants from among the sons of men. 10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from mankind.
11 Though they intended evil against You And devised a plot, They will not succeed. 11 Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed;
12 For You will make them turn their back; You will aim with Your bowstrings at their faces. 12 for you will make them turn their backs when you aim at them with drawn bow.
13 Be exalted, O LORD, in Your strength; We will sing and praise Your power. 13 Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength; we will sing and praise your might.
