Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 To victory, the psalm of David. Lord, the king shall be glad in thy virtue; and he shall full out have joy greatly on thine health. (To victory, the song of David. Lord, the king shall be glad for thy strength, or thy might; and he shall have great joy in thy victory.) 1 O LORD, the king rejoices in your strength. How great is his joy in the victories you give!
2 Thou hast given to him the desire of his heart; and thou hast not defrauded him of the will of his lips. (Thou hast given him his heart's desire; and thou hast not denied him what he asked for with his lips.) 2 You have granted him the desire of his heart and have not withheld the request of his lips. "Selah"
3 For thou hast before come him in the blessings of sweetness; thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stone. (For thou hast come before him with the blessings of goodness; thou hast set upon his head a crown of pure gold.) 3 You welcomed him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
4 He asked of thee life, and thou gavest it to him; the length of days into the world, and into the world of world. (He asked for life from thee, and thou gavest it to him; yea, 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 in thine health; thou shalt put glory, and great fairness, on him. (His glory is great because of thy help/Thy salvation hath brought him great glory; thou shalt put honour, and majesty, upon him.) 5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
6 For thou shalt give him into blessing into the world of world; thou shalt make him glad in joy with thy cheer. (For thou shalt make him blessed forever and ever; thou shalt make him glad with joy before thee.) 6 Surely you have granted him eternal blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
7 For the king hopeth in the Lord; and in the mercy of the highest he shall not be moved. (For the king trusteth in the Lord; and by the love of the Most High, he shall not be moved, or shaken.) 7 For the king trusts in the LORD; through the unfailing love of the Most High he will not be shaken.
8 Thine hand be found to all thine enemies; thy right hand find all them that hate thee. (Thy hand shall find all thy enemies; thy right hand shall find all those who hate thee.) 8 Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies; your right hand will seize your foes.
9 Thou shalt put them as a furnace of fire in the time of thy cheer; the Lord shall trouble them in his ire, and fire shall devour them. (Thou shalt put them into a fiery furnace at the time of thy coming; the Lord in his anger shall trouble them, and then 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 Thou shalt lose the fruit of them from the earth; and the seed of them from the sons of men. (Thou shalt destroy their descendants from off the earth; yea, their children from among the sons and daughters of men.) 10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from mankind.
11 For they bowed evil against thee; they thought counsels, which they might not stablish. (For they brought in evil against thee; yea, they thought out evil plans, but they could not execute them.) 11 Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed;
12 For thou shalt put them aback; in thy remnants thou shalt make ready the cheer of them. (For thou shalt make them turn, and run away, when thou shalt aim thy arrows at them.) 12 for you will make them turn their backs when you aim at them with drawn bow.
13 Lord, be thou enhanced in thy virtue; we shall sing, and say openly thy virtues. (Lord, be thou exalted in thy strength; we shall sing, and shall talk openly, about thy power.) 13 Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength; we will sing and praise your might.
