Psalm 21
Douay-Rheims Bible

After the Battle

(Proverbs 21:1-31)

1Unto the end. A psalm for David. In thy strength, O Lord, the king shall joy; and in thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly.

2Thou hast given him his heart's desire: end hast not withholden from him the will of his lips.

3For thou hast prevented him with blessings of sweetness: thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.

4He asked life of thee: and thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever.

5His glory is great in thy salvation: glory and great beauty shalt thou lay upon him.

6For thou shalt give him to be a blessing for ever and ever: thou shalt make him joyful in gladness with thy countenance.

7For the king hopeth in the Lord: and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.

8Let thy hand be found by all thy enemies: let thy right hand find out all them that hate thee.

9Thou shalt make them as an oven of fire, in the time of thy anger: the Lord shall trouble them in his wrath, and fire shall devour them.

10Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth: and their seed from among the children of men.

11For they have intended evils against thee: they have devised counsels which they have not been able to establish.

12For thou shalt make them turn their back: in thy remnants thou shalt prepare their face.

13Be thou exalted, O Lord, in thy own strength: we will sing and praise thy power.
