20 May the Lord answer you in ·times [L the day] of ·trouble [distress]. May the name of the God of Jacob ·protect [defend; provide refuge for] you [Num. 6:24]. 2 May he send you help from ·his Temple [L the sanctuary] and support you from Mount Zion [C location of the Temple]. 3 May he remember all your ·offerings [gifts; tributes; grain offerings; Lev. 2] and ·accept [look with favor on] all your ·sacrifices [L whole burnt offerings; Lev. 1]. ·Selah[Interlude] 4 May he give you ·what you want [L all your heart] and ·make all your plans succeed [L fulfill all your plans], 5 and we will shout for joy when you ·succeed [are victorious; C as in battle], and we will raise a ·flag [banner] in the name of our God. May the Lord ·give you [fulfill] all that you ask for.
6 Now I know the Lord ·helps [saves; gives victory to] his ·appointed king [anointed]. He answers him from his holy heaven and ·saves him [gives him victory] with his strong right hand. 7 Some ·trust in [boast in; rely on] chariots, others in horses, but we ·trust [boast in; rely on] the name of the Lord our God [Is. 2:7]. 8 They ·are overwhelmed and defeated [collapse and fall], but we ·march forward and win [L rise and stand erect]. 9 Lord, ·save [give victory to] the king! Answer us when we call for help.
