Righteousness and justice are the foundations of your throne. Mercy and truth stand in front of you.
Blessed are the people who know how to praise you. They walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.
They find joy in your name all day long. They are joyful in your righteousness
because you are the glory of their strength. By your favor you give us victory.
Our shield belongs to the LORD. Our king belongs to the Holy One of Israel.
Once in a vision you said to your faithful ones: "I set a boy above warriors. I have raised up one chosen from the people.
I found my servant David. I anointed him with my holy oil.
My hand is ready to help him. My arm will also give him strength.
No enemy will take him by surprise. No wicked person will mistreat him.
I will crush his enemies in front of him and defeat those who hate him.
My faithfulness and mercy will be with him, and in my name he will be victorious.
