For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1The Lord answer thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high; 2Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; 3Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah 4Grant thee thy heart's desire, and fulfill all thy counsel. 5We will triumph in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the Lord fulfill all thy petitions. 6Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he wilt 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 make mention of the name of the Lord our God. 8They are bowed down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. 9Save, Lord: let the King answer us when we call.
