Psalms

Thanksgiving for the King.  Psalm 21(v20)

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1In your strength the king rejoices, O Yahweh;
and in your help how greatly he exults!
2You have given him his heart's desire,
and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
3For you meet him with goodly blessings;
you set a crown of fine gold upon his head.

4He asked life of you; you gave it to him,
length of days for ever and ever.
5His glory is great through your help;
splendour and majesty you bestow upon him.
6Yea, you make him most blessed for ever;
you make him glad with the joy of your presence.
7For the king trusts in Yahweh;
and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.

8Your hand will find out all your enemies;
your right hand will find out those who hate you.
9You will make them as a blazing oven when you appear.
Yahweh will swallow them up in his wrath; and fire will consume them.
10You will destroy their offspring from the earth,
and their children from among the sons of men.
11If they plan evil against you,
if they devise mischief, they will not succeed.
12For you will put them to flight;
you will aim at their faces with your bows.

13Be exalted, O Yahweh, in your strength!
We will sing and praise your power.

This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
