1For the leader. A psalm of David:
2May Adonai answer you in times of distress,
may the name of the God of Ya‘akov protect you.
3May he send you help from the sanctuary
and give you support from Tziyon.
4May he be reminded by all your grain offerings
and accept the fat of your burnt offerings. (Selah)
5May he grant you your heart’s desire
and bring all your plans to success.
6Then we will shout for joy at your victory
and fly our flags in the name of our God.
May Adonai fulfill all your requests.
7Now I know that Adonai
gives victory to his anointed one —
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with mighty victories by his right hand.
8Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we praise the name of Adonai our God.
9They will crumple and fall,
but we will arise and stand erect.
10Give victory, Adonai!
Let the King answer us the day we call.
