5 Then we will shout for joy over your victory and celebrate your triumph by praising our God. May the Lord answer 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 the Lord gives victory to his chosen king; he answers him from his holy heaven and by his power gives him great victories. 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 their war chariots and others in their horses, but we trust in the power of the Lord our God. 7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 Such people will stumble and fall, but we will rise and stand firm. 8 They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
9 Give victory to the king, O Lord; answer us when we call. 9 O LORD, save the king! Answer us when we call!
