To the director. A melody of David.
20 May Jehovah answer you in the day of distress.
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you.+
2 May he send you help from the holy place+
And sustain you from Zion.+
3 May he remember all your gift offerings;
May he accept with favor* your burnt offering. (Selah)
4 May he grant you the desires of your heart+
And give success to all your plans.*
5 We will shout joyfully over your acts of salvation;+
We will lift our banners in the name of our God.+
May Jehovah fulfill all your requests.
6 Now I do know that Jehovah saves his anointed one.+
He answers him from his holy heavens
With great salvation* by his right hand.+
7 Some rely on chariots and others on horses,+
But we call on the name of Jehovah our God.+
8 They have collapsed and fallen,
But we have risen up and been restored.+
9 O Jehovah, save the king!+
He will answer us in the day we call for help.+
