Psalm 21

Domine, in virtute tua
1
The King shall rejoice in your strength, O Lord; *
exceedingly glad shall he be of your salvation.
2
You have given him his heart’s desire *
and have not denied him the request of his lips.
3
For you shall meet him with the blessings of goodness, *
and shall set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
4
He asked you for life, and you gave it to him: *
length of days, for ever and ever.
5
His honor is great because of your salvation; *
glory and majesty shall you lay upon him.
6
For you shall give him everlasting felicity *
and make him glad with the joy of your countenance.
7
For the King puts his trust in the Lord, *
and because of the mercy of the Most High, he shall not be moved.
8
All your enemies shall feel your hand; *
your right hand shall find those who hate you.
9
You shall make them like a fiery oven in the time of your wrath; *
the Lord shall destroy them in his displeasure,and the fire shall consume them.
10
Their offspring you shall root out of the earth *
and their seed from among the children of men.
11
For they intended evil against you *
and imagined wicked schemes, which they are not able to perform.
12
Therefore you shall put them to flight, *
and the strings of your bow you shall aim at their faces.
13
Be exalted, O Lord, in your own strength; *
so we will sing and praise your power.

Psalm 24

Domini est terra
1
The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, *
the compass of the world and those who dwell therein.
2
For he has founded it upon the seas *
and established it upon the rivers of the deep.
3
Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? *
Or who shall stand in his holy place?
4
He who has clean hands and a pure heart, *
and who has not set his mind upon vanity, nor sworn to deceive his neighbor.
5
He shall receive blessing from the Lord *
and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6
This is the generation of those who seek him, *
even of those who seek your face, O God of Jacob.
7
Lift up your heads, O you gates, and be lifted up, you everlasting doors; *
and the King of glory shall come in.
8
“Who is the King of glory?” *
“It is the Lord strong and mighty, even the Lord,mighty in battle.”
9
Lift up your heads, O you gates, and be lifted up, you everlasting doors; *
and the King of glory shall come in.
10
“Who is the King of glory?” *
“The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.”
