  Psalm 20  

20:1 Unto the end. A psalm for David.

20:1 In finem Psalmus David

20:2 In thy strength, O Lord, the king shall joy; and in thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly.

20:2 Domine in virtute tua laetabitur rex et super salutare tuum exultabit vehementer

20:3 Thou hast given him his heart's desire: end hast not withholden from him the will of his lips.

20:3 Desiderium animae eius tribuisti ei et voluntate labiorum eius non fraudasti eum

20:4 For thou hast prevented him with blessings of sweetness: thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.

20:4 Quoniam praevenisti eum in benedictionibus dulcedinis posuisti in capite eius coronam de lapide pretioso

20:5 He asked life of thee: and thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever.

20:5 Vitam petiit a te et tribuisti ei longitudinem dierum in saeculum et in saeculum saeculi

20:6 His glory is great in thy salvation: glory and great beauty shalt thou lay upon him.

20:6 Magna gloria eius in salutari tuo gloriam et magnum decorem inpones super eum

20:7 For thou shalt give him to be a blessing for ever and ever: thou shalt make him joyful in gladness with thy countenance.

20:7 Quoniam dabis eum benedictionem in saeculum saeculi laetificabis eum in gaudio cum vultu tuo

20:8 For the king hopeth in the Lord: and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.

20:8 Quoniam rex sperat in Domino et in misericordia Altissimi non commovebitur

20:9 Let thy hand be found by all thy enemies: let thy right hand find out all them that hate thee.

20:9 Inveniatur manus tua omnibus inimicis tuis dextera tua inveniat omnes qui te oderunt

20:10 Thou 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.

20:10 Pones eos ut clibanum ignis in tempore vultus tui Dominus in ira sua conturbabit eos et devorabit eos ignis

20:11 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth: and their seed from among the children of men.

20:11 Fructum eorum de terra perdes et semen eorum a filiis hominum

20:12 For they have intended evils against thee: they have devised counsels which they have not been able to establish.

20:12 Quoniam declinaverunt in te mala cogitaverunt consilia quae non potuerunt stabilire

20:13 For thou shalt make them turn their back: in thy remnants thou shalt prepare their face.

20:13 Quoniam pones eos dorsum in reliquis tuis praeparabis vultum eorum

20:14 Be thou exalted, O Lord, in thy own strength: we will sing and praise thy power.

20:14 Exaltare Domine in virtute tua cantabimus et psallemus virtutes tuas
