For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.

1 May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble.

May the name of the God of Jacob set you up on high,

2 send you help from the sanctuary,

grant you support from Zion,

3 remember all your offerings,

and accept your burned sacrifice. Selah.

4 May he grant you your heart’s desire,

and fulfill all your counsel.

5 We will triumph in your salvation.

In the name of our God, we will set up our banners.

May the LORD grant all your requests.

6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed.

He will answer him from his holy heaven,

with the saving strength of his right hand.

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses,

but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.

8 They are bowed down and fallen,

but we rise up, and stand upright.

9 Save, LORD!

Let the King answer us when we call!
