(Of the Director; a psalm of David’s.)
20 Jehovah answer you on a day of crisis,
the name of Israel’s God set you out of reach of harm,
2 Send you help from sacred ground
and from Sion give you support,
3 Remember all your oblations
and make much of your burnt-offering, (Selah)
4 Give you what you have at heart
and bring fulfillment to all your purposes.
5 We will shout over your victory
and fly our colors in the name of our God;
Jehovah give fulfillment to all your requests.
6 Now I know that Jehovah gives victory to his anointed;
he will answer him from his hallowed heavens
with the mighty saving acts of his right hand.
7 Chariots these and ponies those,
and we the name of our God Jehovah commemorate.
8 They have stooped and fallen,
but we are up and keep our feet.
9 Jehovah, make the king victorious
and answer us on the day when we call.
