3For you bring him rich blessings; you place a golden crown on his head. 3For You welcomed him with rich blessings; You placed on his head a crown of pure gold.
4He asked you to sustain his life, and you have granted him long life and an enduring dynasty. 4He asked You for life, and You granted it—length of days, forever and ever.
5Your deliverance brings him great honor; you give him majestic splendor. 5Great is his glory in Your salvation; You bestow on him splendor and majesty.
6For you grant him lasting blessings; you give him great joy by allowing him into your presence. 6For You grant him blessings forever; You cheer him with joy in Your presence.
7For the king trusts in the LORD, and because of the sovereign LORD's faithfulness he is not upended. 7For the king trusts in the LORD; through the loving devotion of the Most High, he will not be shaken.
8You prevail over all your enemies; your power is too great for those who hate you. 8Your hand will apprehend all Your enemies; Your right hand will seize those who hate You.
9You burn them up like a fiery furnace when you appear; the LORD angrily devours them; the fire consumes them. 9You will place them in a fiery furnace at the time of Your appearing. In His wrath the LORD will engulf them, and the fire will consume them.
10You destroy their offspring from the earth, their descendants from among the human race. 10You will wipe their descendants from the earth, and their offspring from the sons of men.
11Yes, they intend to do you harm; they dream up a scheme, but they do not succeed. 11Though they intend You harm, the schemes they devise will not prevail.
12For you make them retreat when you shoot your arrows at them. 12For You will put them to flight when Your bow is trained upon them.
13Rise up, O LORD, in strength! We will sing and praise your power! 13Be exalted, O LORD, in Your strength; we will sing and praise Your power.
