The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 God answer you on the day you crash, The name God-of-Jacob put you out of harm's reach, 1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 Send reinforcements from Holy Hill, Dispatch from Zion fresh supplies, 2 May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.
3 Exclaim over your offerings, Celebrate your sacrifices, 3 May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. "Selah"
4 Give you what your heart desires, Accomplish your plans. 4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
5 When you win, we plan to raise the roof and lead the parade with our banners. May all your wishes come true! 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 That clinches it - help's coming, an answer's on the way, everything's going to work out. 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 See those people polishing their chariots, and those others grooming their horses? But we're making garlands for God our God. 7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 The chariots will rust, those horses pull up lame - and we'll be on our feet, standing tall. 8 They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
9 Make the king a winner, God; the day we call, give us your answer. 9 O LORD, save the king! Answer us when we call!
