For the choir director: A psalm of David.
1 In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry.
May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm.
2 May he send you help from his sanctuary
and strengthen you from Jerusalem.[a]
3 May he remember all your gifts
and look favorably on your burnt offerings. Interlude
4 May he grant your heart’s desires
and make all your plans succeed.
5 May 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.
6 Now I know that the Lord rescues his anointed king.
He will answer him from his holy heaven
and rescue him by his great power.
7 Some nations boast of their chariots and horses,
but we boast in the name of the Lord our God.
8 Those nations will fall down and collapse,
but we will rise up and stand firm.
9 Give victory to our king, O Lord!
Answer our cry for help.

- 20:2 Hebrew Zion.
Kwa mtsogoleri wa mayimbidwe. Salimo la Davide.
1Yehova akuyankhe pamene uli pa msautso;
dzina la Mulungu wa Yakobo likuteteze.
2 Iye atumize thandizo kuchokera ku malo ake opatulika;
akugwirizize kuchokera ku Ziyoni.
3 Iye akumbukire nsembe zako zonse
ndipo alandire nsembe zako zopsereza.
4 Akupatse chokhumba cha mtima wako
ndipo akuthandize kuti zonse wakonza zichitike.
5 Ife tidzafuwula ndi chimwemwe pamene iwe wapambana
ndipo tidzanyamula mbendera zathu mʼdzina la Mulungu wathu,
Yehova ayankhe zopempha zako zonse.
6 Tsopano ndadziwa kuti Yehova amapulumutsa wodzozedwa wake;
Iye amamuyankha kuchokera kumwamba ku malo ake opatulika
ndi mphamvu yopulumutsa ya dzanja lake lamanja.
7 Ena amadalira magaleta ndipo ena akavalo
koma ife tidzadalira dzina la Yehova Mulungu wathu.
8 Iwo amagonjetsedwa ndi kugwa,
koma ife timadzuka ndi kuyima chilili.
9 Inu Yehova, pulumutsani mfumu!
Tiyankheni pamene tikuyitanani!
