mp3 file from
1  The King shall joy in Thy strength, LORD,
and in Thy full salvation
how greatly He magnifies Thee.
2       His heart's desire You gave Him,
      and You have not withheld from Him
          His tender lips' petition.

<selah> <repeat 1st verse>
3    For You have met Him with blessings
of goodness, and for His head
You ordain a crown of pure gold.
4         Life divine up from the dead,
He asked of You, and You gave Him
length of days that never end.
5 In that salvation wrought by Thee
His glory's great as can be.
   You made to be fitting to Him
 honor, beauty, majesty
6   for You have ordained Him to be
            blessings for eternity.
You have made Him with Your presence,
glad with joy exceedingly,
7    for the King trusts in the Father,
and through the most High's mercy,
       He shall ne'er be moved forever
8       though foes hate and despise Thee.

    Your hand shall find out all Your foes.
          Your right hand shall find out these.
9 You will ordain them to be those
           like as an oven fiery.
The LORD shall consume them in wrath
            at the time of Your coming.
      And the fire shall devour them.
10     You'll destroy from earth their fruit
      and their seed from the sons of men
11        for they Thee planned to uproot.
A plot `gainst Thee they imagined
    which they could not execute.
12 For You have ordained them to be
a shoulder to pull Your cords
  of the dwelling You made ready
  before their faces, O Lord.
13 Be exalted, LORD, in Thy strength.
Thy might we sing and adore.

Heb 1:8  But  of  the Son, ``Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the scepter  of uprightness is the scepter  of  Your kingdom.  
9  You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the  oil   of   exultant   joy  above Your partners'';
John 16:13  But when He,  the  Spirit of reality, comes, He will guide you into  all   the  reality; for He will not speak from Himself, but what He hears He will speak; and He will declare to you  the  things  that  are coming.  
14  He will glorify Me, for He will receive of Mine and will declare it to you.  
15  All   that   the   Father   has  is Mine; for this reason I have said  that  He receives of Mine and will declare it to you.
John 1:16  For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.  17  For the law was given through Moses; grace and reality came through Jesus Christ.  18  No one has ever seen God; the only begotten Son, who  is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
1 Tim 3:16  And confessedly great is the mystery of godliness! God has been manifested in flesh, has been justified in the Spirit, has appeared to angels, has been preached among the nations, has been believed on in the world, has been received up in glory.

Col 2:9  For in Him dwells all the fullness of the  Godhead  bodily,
Phil 1:19  For I know that for me this will turn out to salvation through your petition and the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,  20  According to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I will be put to shame, but with all boldness, as always, even now Christ will be  magnified  in my body, whether through life or through death.  21  For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Jer 33:15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause a Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.
16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell in safety. And this is the name wherewith she shall be called: Jehovah our Righteousness.
Rev 21:10  And he carried me away in spirit onto a great and high mountain and showed me  the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out  of  heaven from  God ,  11  Having   the   glory   of   God . Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, as clear as crystal.

Ps 16:2 O God, You've said to the Lord,

all My delight's in these and
those who are of great worth.
Psalm 2:8 Ask of Me, and I shall give Thee
Thine inheritance, the nations,
and the uttermost parts of earth
shall be for Thine own possession.
Phil 2:8  And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, becoming obedient even unto death, and that the death of a cross.  9  Therefore also God highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,  10  That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,  11  And every tongue should openly confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
Rev 14:14  And I saw, and behold, there was a white cloud, and on the cloud One like the Son of Man sitting, having a golden  crown  on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand.

8 though He was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which He suffered;
9 and having been made perfect, He became unto all them that obey Him the cause of eternal salvation;
Psalms 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
Psalms 61:6 Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations.
Isa 53:9  And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither [was any] deceit in his mouth.  
10  Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put [him] to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see [his] seed, he shall prolong [his] days, and the pleasure  of  the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
Heb 7:24 but He, because He abideth for ever, hath His priesthood unchangeable.
25 Wherefore also He is able to save to the uttermost them that draw near unto God through Him, seeing He is always living to intercede for them.
Heb 2:9  but we see Jesus, who was made some little inferior to angels on account of the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; so that by the grace of God he should taste death for every thing.
Ps 16:8 I've set the Lord before me
always for He has proved,
because He's at my right hand
I shall never be moved.
Ps 16:11 You will show me the pathway
of life before Your face.
In Your presence is fulness
of joy, abounding grace.
At Your right hand are pleasures
forever more and more.

Isa 9: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name is called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with judgment and with righteousness, from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of Jehovah of hosts will perform this.
42:6 I, Jehovah, have called thee in righteousness, and will take hold of thy hand; and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the nations,
7 to open the blind eyes, to bring forth the prisoner from the prison, them that sit in darkness out of the house of restraint.
49:5 And now, saith Jehovah, that formed me from the womb to be his servant, that I should bring Jacob again to him; (though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorified in the eyes of Jehovah, and my God shall be my strength;)
6 -and he saith, It is a small thing that thou should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel; I have even given thee for a light of the nations, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
7   Thus saith Jehovah, the Redeemer of Israel, his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to the servant of rulers: Kings shall see and arise, princes, and they shall worship, because of Jehovah who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who hath chosen thee.
8 Thus saith Jehovah: In a time of acceptance have I answered thee, and in the day of salvation have I helped thee; and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the land, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
Jer 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith Jehovah, when I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, who shall reign as king, and act wisely, and shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.

Hag 2:7 and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come; and I will fill this house with glory, saith Jehovah of hosts.

Mal 3:1 Behold, I send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me; and the Lord whom ye seek will suddenly come to his temple, and the Angel of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he cometh, saith Jehovah of hosts.
2 But who shall endure the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? For he will be like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' lye.
3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; and he will purify the children of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver; and they shall offer unto Jehovah an oblation in righteousness.
Matt 1:23  ``Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call His name  Emmanuel '' (which is translated, God with us).
2:6  ``And you, Bethlehem, land of Judah, by no means are you the least among the princes of Judah; for out of you shall come forth a Ruler, One who will  shepherd  My people Israel.''
John 1:29  The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, Behold, the  Lamb  of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
6:35  Jesus said to them,  I   am  the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall by no means hunger, and he who believes into Me shall by no means ever thirst.
48  I   am  the bread of life.  49  Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.  50  This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, that anyone may eat of it and not die.  51  I   am  the living bread which came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever; And the bread which  I  will give is My flesh, given for the life of the world.
8:12  Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying,  I   am  the light of the world; he who follows Me shall by no means walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
9:5  While  I   am  in the world,  I   am  the light of the world.
10:7  Jesus therefore said to them again, Truly, truly,  I  say to you that  I   am  the door of the sheep.  8  All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.  9  I   am  the door; if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and go out and shall find pasture.  10  The thief does not come except to steal and kill and destroy;  I  have come that they may have life and may have it abundantly.  11  I   am the good Shepherd; the good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.  12  He who is a hireling and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.  13  He flees because he is a hireling and it does not matter to him concerning the sheep.  14  I   am  the good Shepherd, and  I  know My own, and My own know Me,
11:25  Jesus said to her, I   am  the resurrection and the life; he who believes into Me, even if he should die, shall live;  26  And every one who lives and believes into Me shall by no means die forever. Do you believe this?
14:6  Jesus said to him,  I   am  the way and the reality and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.
15:1  I   am  the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman.  
     5  I   am  the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me and  I  in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing.
Rom 9:5  Whose are  the  fathers, and out of whom, as regards what is according to flesh, is  the   Christ , who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.
10:4  For  Christ   is  the end of the law unto righteousness to everyone who believes.
1 Cor 1:30  But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom to us from God: both  righteousness  and sanctification and redemption,
5:7  Purge out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened; for our  Passover , Christ, also has been sacrificed.
21  Him who did not know sin He made sin on our behalf that we might become the  righteousness  of God in Him.
10:4  And all drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank of a spiritual  rock  which followed them, and the  rock  was Christ.
11:3  But I want you to know that  Christ   is  the head of every man, and the man  is  the head of the woman, and God  is  the head of  Christ .
12:12  For even as  the  body is one and has many members, yet all  the  members of  the  body, being many, are one body, so also is  the   Christ .
Eph 2:14  For He Himself is our peace, He who has made both one and has broken down the middle wall of partition, the enmity,  15  Abolishing in His flesh the law of the commandments in ordinances, that He might create the two in Himself into one new man, so making peace,  16  And might reconcile both in one Body to God through the cross, having slain the enmity by it.  17  And coming, He announced peace as the gospel to you who were far off, and peace to those who were near,  18  For through Him we both have access in one Spirit unto the Father.  19  So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,  20  Being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the  cornerstone ;
5:23  For a husband  is  head of the wife as also  Christ   is  Head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the Body.
Col 1:12  Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you for a share of the allotted portion of the saints in the light;  13  Who delivered us out of the authority of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,  14  In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins;  15  Who  is the image of the invisible God, the Firstborn of all creation,  16  Because in Him all things were created, in the heavens and on the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or lordships or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and unto Him.  17  And  He   is  before all things, and all things cohere in Him;  18  And  He   is  the Head of the Body, the church;  He   is  the beginning, the Firstborn from the dead, that  He  Himself might have the first place in all things;  19  For in Him all the fullness was pleased to dwell
3:11  Where there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free man, but  Christ   is  all and in all.
1 Tim 2:5  For there is one God and one  Mediator  of God and men, the man Christ Jesus,  6  Who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony to be borne in its own times.
Heb 8:6  But now  He  has obtained a more excellent ministry inasmuch as  He   is  also the Mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted upon better promises.
9:15  And because of this  He   is  the Mediator of a new covenant, so that, death having taken place for redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, those who have been called might receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
12:24  And to Jesus, the  Mediator  of a new covenant; and to the blood of sprinkling, which speaks something better than that of Abel.
13:20  Now the God of peace, He who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great  Shepherd  of the sheep, in the blood of an eternal covenant,
1 Pet 2:6  For it is contained in Scripture: ``Behold, I lay in Zion a  cornerstone , chosen and precious; and he who believes on Him shall by no means be put to shame.''
25  For you were like sheep being led astray, but you have now returned to the  Shepherd  and Overseer of your souls.
5:4  And when the Chief  Shepherd  is manifested, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.
Rev 1:17  And when  I  saw Him,  I  fell at His feet as dead; and He placed His right hand on me, saying, Do not fear;  I   am  the First and the Last  18  And the living One; and  I  became dead, and behold,  I   am  living forever and ever; and  I  have the keys of death and of Hades.
2:8  And to the messenger of the church in Smyrna write: These things says the First and the Last, who became dead and lived again:
18  And to the messenger of the church in Thyatira write: These things says the Son of God, He who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like shining bronze:
3:7  And to the messenger of the church in Philadelphia write: These things says the Holy One, the true One, the One who has the key of David, the One who opens and no one will shut, and shuts and no one opens:
14  And to the messenger of the church in Laodicea write: These things says the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the beginning of the creation of God:
5:5  And one of the elders said to me, Do not weep; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so that He may open the scroll and its seven seals.  6  And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures and in the midst of the elders a  Lamb  standing as having just been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
17:14  These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for  He   is  Lord of lords and King of kings; and they who are with Him, the called and chosen and faithful, will also overcome them.
19:11  And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and  He  who sits on it called Faithful and True, and in righteousness  He  judges and makes war.  12  And His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems, and  He  has a name written which no one knows but Himself.  13  And  He   is  clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and His name  is  called the Word of God.  14  And the armies which are in heaven followed Him on white horses, dressed in fine linen, white and clean.  15  And out of His mouth proceeds a sharp sword, that with it  He  might smite the nations; and  He  will shepherd them with an iron rod; and  He  treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.  16  And  He  has on His garment and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
21:22  And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the  Lamb  are its temple.  23  And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon that they should shine in it, for the glory of God illumined it, and its lamp is the  Lamb .
22:12  Behold,  I  come quickly, and My reward is with Me to render to each one as his work is.  13  I   am  the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
Rev 9:14  Saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.  15  And the four angels were released, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year that they might kill the  third  part of men.  16  And the number of the armies of horsemen was two hundred million; I heard their number.  17  And thus I saw the horses in the vision and those sitting on them, having breastplates of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions, and out of their mouths proceed fire and smoke and brimstone.  18  By these three plagues the  third  part of the men were killed, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone proceeding out of their mouths.  19  For the power of the horses are in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents and had heads, and with them they harm men.
Zech 12:6  In that day will I make the thousands of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, [even] in Jerusalem
Rev 17:13  These have one mind, and they give their power and authority to the beast.  14  These will  make   war  with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and they who are with Him, the called and chosen and faithful, will also overcome them.
19:19  And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to  make   war  with Him who sits on the horse and with His army.

Isa 54:1 Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.
2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
4 Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.
5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.
Jer 10:20  My tabernacle is spoiled, and all my cords are broken: my children are gone forth of me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth my tent any more, and to set up my curtains.
21  For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered.
22  Behold, the noise of the bruit is come, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a den of dragons.
Matt 18:6  And whoever stumbles one of these little ones who believe in Me, it is more profitable for him that a great millstone be hung around his neck and he be drowned in the open sea.  7  Woe to the world because of  stumbling  blocks! For it is necessary for  stumbling  blocks to come, but woe to that man through whom the  stumbling  block comes.
Luke 17:1  And He said to His disciples, It is impossible for causes of  stumbling  not to come, but woe to him through whom they come.  2  It is more profitable for him if a millstone is put around his neck and he is hurled into the sea than to stumble one of these little ones.
Matt 26:24  The Son of Man is going away, even as it is written concerning Him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have  been  good for that man if he had not  been   born .
Mark 14:21  For the Son of Man is going away, even as it is written concerning Him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have  been  good for that man if he had not  been   born .
Heb 8:1-2  Now in the things which are being said the chief point is this: We have such a High Priest, who sat down on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,  2  A Minister of the holy places, even of the true  tabernacle , which the Lord pitched, not man.
John 14:2  In My Father's house are many abodes; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to  prepare  a place for you.  3  And if I go and  prepare  a place for you, I am coming again and will receive you to Myself, so that where I am you also may be.
1 Cor 2:7  But we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, the wisdom which has been hidden, which God predestined before the ages for our glory,  8  Which none of the rulers of this age have known; for if they had known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;  9  But as it is written, "Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard and which have not come up in man's heart; things which God has  prepared  for those who love Him.''
Heb 11:16  But as it is, they long after a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed of them, to be called their God, for He has  prepared  a city for them.
Rev 19:7  Let us rejoice and exult, and let us give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself  ready .
21:2  And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  3  And I heard a loud voice out of the throne, saying, Behold, the  tabernacle  of God is with men, and He will  tabernacle with them, and they will be His peoples, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
Luke 2:30 for mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
 31 which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples;
