|Praise for Deliverance|
|For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.|
| ||THE KING shall joy in thy strength, O Jehovah;|
And in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
| ||Thou hast given him his hearts desire,|
And hast not withholden the request of his lips. [Selah
| ||For thou meetest him with the blessings of goodness: 1|
Thou settest a crown of fine gold on his head.
| ||He asked life of thee, thou gavest it him,|
Even length of days for ever and ever.
| ||His glory is great in thy salvation:|
Honor and majesty dost thou lay upon him.
| ||For thou makest 2 him most blessed for ever:|
Thou makest him glad with joy in thy presence.
| ||For the king trusteth in Jehovah;|
And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he shall not be moved.
| ||Thy hand will find out all thine enemies;|
Thy right hand will find out those that hate thee.
| ||Thou wilt make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thine anger: 3|
Jehovah will swallow them up in his wrath,
And the fire shall devour them.
| ||Their fruit wilt thou destroy from the earth,|
And their seed from among the children of men.
| ||For they intended evil against thee;|
They conceived a device which they are not able to perform.
| ||For thou wilt make them turn their back;|
Thou wilt make ready with thy bowstrings against their face.
| ||Be thou exalted, O Jehovah, in thy strength:|
So will we sing and praise thy power.
