Deliverance in Battle
For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.
1 May Yahweh answer you in a day of trouble;
may the name of Jacob’s God protect you.
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary
and sustain you from Zion.
3 May He remember all your offerings
and accept your burnt offering.Selah
4 May He give you what your heart desires
and fulfill your whole purpose.
5 Let us shout for joy at your victory
and lift the banner in the name of our God.
May Yahweh fulfill all your requests.
6 Now I know that the Lord gives victory to His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
with mighty victories from[a] His right hand.
7 Some take pride in chariots, and others in horses,
but we take pride in the name of Yahweh our God.
8 They collapse and fall,
but we rise and stand firm.
9 Lord, give victory to the king!
May He[b] answer us on the day that we call.
