The sovereign rejoices in Your strength, O YHWH; And how greatly he exults in Your deliverance!
You have given him the desire of his heart, And You have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah.
For You put before him the blessings of goodness; You set a crown of fine gold on his head.
He asked life from You, and You gave it to him - Length of days forever and ever.
Through Your deliverance his esteem is great; You have laid excellency and splendour on him.
For You have made him most blessed forever; You have made him glad with the joy of Your presence.
For the sovereign is trusting in YHWH, And through the kindness of the Most High he is not moved.
Your hand reaches all Your enemies; Your right hand reaches those who hate You.
You make them as a furnace of fire in the time of Your presence; YHWH does swallow them up in His wrath, And fire does consume them.
You destroy their fruit from the earth, And their seed from among the sons of men.
For they held out evil against You; They devised a plot; they do not prevail.
For You make them turn their back, When You aim with Your bowstring toward their faces.
Be exalted, O YHWH, in Your strength! We sing and we praise Your might.
