1 To the chief musician, a psalm of David. May the Lord answer thee on the day of distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect thee;
2 May he send thee help from the sanctuary, and support thee from Zion;
3 May he remember all thy meatofferings, and accept in favor thy burntsacrifice. Selah.
4 May he grant thee according to thy own heart, and fulfill all thy resolves.
5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God will we upraise our banners: may the Lord fulfill all thy petitions.
6 Now I know that the Lord saveth his anointed: he will answer him from his holy heavens, with the saving strength of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will invoke the name of the Lord our God.
8 They are prostrate and fallen; but we are risen up and stand erect.
9 O Lord, save us: may the king answer us on the day when we call on him.
