Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;1 love and faithfulness go before you.215
Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk3 in the light4 of your presence, O LORD.
They rejoice in your name5 all day long; they exult in your righteousness.
For you are their glory and strength,6 and by your favor you exalt our horn.a718
Indeed, our shieldb8 belongs to the LORD, our king9 to the Holy One of Israel.
Once you spoke in a vision, to your faithful people you said: "I have bestowed strength on a warrior; I have exalted a young man from among the people.
I have found David10 my servant;11 with my sacred oil12 I have anointed13 him.
My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him.1422
No enemy will subject him to tribute;15 no wicked man will oppress16 him.
I will crush his foes before him17 and strike down his adversaries.1824
My faithful love will be with him,19 and through my name his hornc will be exalted.
