The Assurance of God’s Saving Work
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble;
May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2May He send you help from the sanctuary,
And strengthen you out of Zion;
3May He remember all your offerings,
And accept your burnt sacrifice.
4May He grant you according to your heart’s desire,
And #Ps. 21:2fulfill all your purpose.
5We will rejoice in your salvation,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.
6Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.
7Some trust in chariots, and some in #Deut. 20:1; Ps. 33:16, 17; Prov. 21:31; Is. 31:1horses;
But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
8They have bowed down and fallen;
But we have risen and stand upright.
May the King answer us when we call.
