Psalm 21 Tuesday Evening 1
Yahweh, the king is glad * because you gave him victory;
he is full of joy * because you made him victorious.
You gave him his heart's desire; * you did not refuse the request he made.
You brought him wonderful blessings, * and set a gold crown on his head.
He asked for eternal life, * and you gave it to him:
unending days, * everlasting life.
Great is his glory for the victory you won; * you have given him fame and majesty.
Your blessings are upon him forever; * you will give him the pleasure of seeing your face.
The king trusts in Yahweh, * and will not defect from the Most High's love.
Your left hand caught all your foes; * your right hand caught those who hate you.
You put them in a blazing furnace * at the time of your fury, Yahweh.
In his wrath he swallowed them up, * and ate them up with fire.
You swept their descendants from the earth * and their children from the human race.
For they plotted a rebellion against you, * they schemed evil, but could not succeed.
You made them crouch, * while you aimed your bows at them.
Yahweh, celebrate your triumph. * We will sing and praise your power.
