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.
