Psalms Trivia:

Swallow them up in your wrath, Oh Lord
20:1-13

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

1 The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!

The king will enjoy your strength, God.

2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.

You've given him everything he wants. Huzzah.

3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.

You've put a gold crown on his head.

4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.

You've given him a life that will never end.

5 His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.

You've made him great, honorable, and majastic.

6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.

7 For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.

He is most blessed.

You've made him exceedingly happy.

8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.

Your hand will discover his enemies.

9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

You will swallow them up in your wrath

and burn them to death. [1]

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

11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.

You will kill their children.

12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.

You will shoot them in the back with your arrows

when they least expect it.

13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.

Be exalted in your strength, God.

We'll sing praise to your power.
