to you—the one who gives saving help to rulers, and who rescues his servant David from the evil sword.
Rescue me and deliver me from the power of strangers, whose mouths speak lies, and whose strong hand is a strong hand of deception,
so thata our sons can grow up fully, in their youth, like plants; so that our daughters can be like pillars carved to decorate a palace;
so that our barns can be full, providing all kinds of food; so that our flocks can be in the thousands— even tens of thousands—in our fields;
so that our cattle can be loaded with calves; so that there won't be any breach in the walls, no exile, no outcries in our streets!
The people who have it like this are truly happy! The people whose God is the LORD are truly happy!
