1 For the leader. A psalm of David: May ADONAI answer you in times of distress, may the name of the God of Ya'akov protect you. 1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary and give you support from Tziyon. 2 May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.
3 May he be reminded by all your grain offerings and accept the fat of your burnt offerings. (Selah) 3 May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. "Selah"
4 May he grant you your heart's desire and bring all your plans to success. 4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
5 Then we will shout for joy at your victory and fly our flags in the name of our God. May ADONAI fulfill all your requests. 5 We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests.
6 Now I know that ADONAI gives victory to his anointed one -he will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty victories by his right hand. 6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we praise the name of ADONAI our God. 7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 They will crumple and fall, but we will arise and stand erect. 8 They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
9 Give victory, ADONAI! Let the King answer us the day we call. 9 O LORD, save the king! Answer us when we call!
