Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk1 in the light2 of your presence, O LORD.
They rejoice in your name3 all day long; they exult in your righteousness.
For you are their glory and strength,4 and by your favor you exalt our horn.a518
Indeed, our shieldb6 belongs to the LORD, our king7 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 David8 my servant;9 with my sacred oil10 I have anointed11 him.
My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him.1222
No enemy will subject him to tribute;13 no wicked man will oppress14 him.
I will crush his foes before him15 and strike down his adversaries.1624
My faithful love will be with him,17 and through my name his hornc will be exalted.
I will set his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers.18
