(20-1) <Unto the end. A psalm for David.> (20-2) In thy strength, O Lord, the king shall joy; and in thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly.
(20-3) Thou hast given him his heart’s desire: and hast not withholden from him the will of his lips.
(20-4) For thou hast prevented him with blessings of sweetness: thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.
(20-5) He asked life of thee: and thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever.
(20-6) His glory is great in thy salvation: glory and great beauty shalt thou lay upon him.
(20-7) For thou shalt give him to be a blessing for ever and ever: thou shalt make him joyful in gladness with thy countenance.
(20-8) For the king hopeth in the Lord: and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
