1 The King shall rejoice in thy strength, O Lord:

yea how greatly shall he rejoice in thy salvation?

2 Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, and hast

3 For thou didst prevent him with liberal blessings,

and didst set a crown of pure gold upon his head.

4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest him a

long life forever and ever.

5 His glory is great in thy salvation: dignity and

honor hast thou laid upon him.

6 For thou hast set him as blessings forever: thou

hast made him glad with the joy of thy countenance.

7 Because the king trusteth in the Lord, and in

the mercy of the most high, he shall not slide.

8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies, and

thy right hand shall find out them that hate thee.

9 Thou shalt make them like a fiery oven in time

10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth,

and their seed from the children of men.

11 For they intended evil against thee, and imagined

will we sing and praise thy power.
