Thanksgiving and Assurances for the King

1For the leader. A psalm of David.

I

2 LORD, the king finds joy in your power; e Ps 63, 12 . in your victory how greatly he rejoices! 3You have granted him his heart's desire; you did not refuse the prayer of his lips.   Selah 4For you welcomed him with goodly blessings; you placed on his head a crown of pure gold. 5He asked life of you; you gave it to him, length of days forever. f 1 Kgs 3, 14 . 6Great is his glory in your victory; majesty and splendor you confer upon him. 7You make him the pattern of blessings forever, you gladden him with the joy of your presence. 8For the king trusts in the LORD, stands firm through the love of the Most High.

II

9Your hand will reach all your enemies; your right hand will reach your foes! 10At the time of your coming you will drive them into a furnace. Then the LORD's anger will consume them, devour them with fire. 11Even their descendants you will wipe out from the earth, their offspring from the human race. 12Though they intend evil against you, devising plots, they will not succeed, 13For you will put them to flight; you will aim at them with your bow.

III

14Arise, LORD, in your power! g Nm 10, 35 . We will sing and chant the praise of your might.

Notes:

e: Ps 63, 12 .
