\20:1\May the Lord give ear to you in the day of trouble; may you be placed on high by the name of the God of Jacob;

3

\20:2\May he send you help from the holy place, and give you strength from Zion;

4

\20:3\May he keep all your offerings in mind, and be pleased with the fat of your burned offerings; (Selah.)

5

\20:4\May he give you your heart's desire, and put all your purposes into effect.

6

\20:5\We will be glad in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will put up our flags: may the Lord give you all your requests.

\20:6\Now am I certain that the Lord gives salvation to his king; he will give him an answer from his holy heaven with the strength of salvation in his right hand.

8

\20:7\Some put their faith in carriages and some in horses; but we will be strong in the name of the Lord our God.

\20:8\They are bent down and made low; but we have been lifted up.

10

\20:9\Come to our help, Lord: let the king give ear to our cry.
