1 To the chief musician, a psalm of David.(20:2)May the Lord answer thee on the day of distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect thee;
2 (20:3)May he send thee help from the sanctuary, and support thee from Zion;
3 (20:4)May he remember all thy meatofferings, and accept in favor thy burntsacrifice. Selah.
4 (20:5)May he grant thee according to thy own heart, and fulfill all thy resolves.
5 (20:6)We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God will we upraise our banners: may the Lord fulfill all thy petitions.
6 (20:7)Now I know that the Lord saveth his anointed: he will answer him from his holy heavens, with the saving strength of his right hand.
7 (20:8)Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will invoke the name of the Lord our God.
8 (20:9)They are prostrate and fallen; but we are risen up and stand erect.
9 (20:10)O Lord, save us: may the king answer us on the day when we call on him.
