¶ 1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid. The King shall reioyce in thy strength, O Lord: yea how greatly shall he reioyce in thy saluation!
3 For thou diddest preuent him with liberall blessings, and didest set a crowne of pure gold vpon his head.
6 For thou hast set him as blessings for euer: thou hast made him glad with the ioy of thy countenance.
8 Thine hand shall finde out all thine enemies, and thy right hand shall finde out them that hate thee.
9 Thou shalt make them like a fierie ouen in time of thine anger: the Lord shall destroy them in his wrath, and the fire shall deuoure them.
12 Therefore shalt thou put them aparte, and the strings of thy bowe shalt thou make readie against their faces.
