A prayer for the king.

[1] Unto the end. A psalm for David. [2] May the Lord hear thee in the day of tribulation: may the name of the God of Jacob protect thee. [3] May he send thee help from the sanctuary: and defend thee out of Sion. [4] May he be mindful of all thy sacrifices: and may thy whole burnt offering be made fat. [5] May he give thee according to thy own heart; and confirm all thy counsels.

[6] We will rejoice in thy salvation; and in the name of our God we shall be exalted. [7] The Lord fulfill all thy petitions: now have I known that the Lord hath saved his anointed. He will hear him from his holy heaven: the salvation of his right hand is in powers. [8] Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will call upon the name of the Lord our God. [9] They are bound, and have fallen; but we are risen, and are set upright. O Lord, save the king: and hear us in the day that we shall call upon thee.

Commentary

[7] “The salvation of his right hand is in powers”: That is, in strength. His right hand is strong and mighty to save them that trust in him.
