Prayer for Victory over Enemies.
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1 # Verses 1-5, 9 is the prayer of intercession voiced by the congregation before David goes into battle. May the Lord answer you (David) in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high [and defend you in battle]!
2May He send you help from the sanctuary (His dwelling place)
And support and strengthen you from Zion!
3May He remember all your meal offerings
And accept your burnt offering. Selah.
4May He grant you your heart’s desire
And fulfill all your plans.
5We will sing joyously over your victory,
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 horses,
But we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God.
8They have bowed down and fallen,
But we have risen and stood upright.
9O Lord, save [the #I.e. David.king];
May the #I.e. Lord.King answer us in the day we call.
