1In times of trouble, may the LORD answer your cry. May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm.1May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
2May he send you help from his sanctuary and strengthen you from Jerusalem.2May he send you help from the sanctuary and give you support from Zion!
3May he remember all your gifts and look favorably on your burnt offerings. Interlude3May he remember all your offerings and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
4May he grant your heart’s desires and make all your plans succeed.4May he grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans!
5May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory and raise a victory banner in the name of our God. May the LORD answer all your prayers.5May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions!
6Now I know that the LORD rescues his anointed king. He will answer him from his holy heaven and rescue him by his great power.6Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand.
7Some nations boast of their chariots and horses, but we boast in the name of the LORD our God.7Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8Those nations will fall down and collapse, but we will rise up and stand firm.8They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.
9Give victory to our king, O LORD! Answer our cry for help.9O LORD, save the king! May he answer us when we call.
