Sometimes it seems like the whole world is against us and there is nowhere to turn. David often felt this way and many of his Psalms reflect that. These Psalms are about David’s trust in the Lord and his salvation, Yeshua. Psalm 20: Our triumph is in his salvation. Psalm 70: We will exalt in his Salvation.
1 May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble.
May the name of the God of Jacob set you up on high,
2 send you help from the sanctuary,
grant you support from Zion,
3 remember all your offerings,
and accept your burned sacrifice.
4 May He grant you your heart’s desire,
and fulfill all your counsel.
5 We will triumph in your salvation.
In the name of our God, we will set up our banners.
May the LORD grant all your requests.
6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed.
He will answer him from his holy heaven,
with the saving strength of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses,
but we trust the name of the LORD our God.
8 They are bowed down and fallen,
but we rise up, and stand upright.
9 Save, LORD!
Let the King answer us when we call!
1 Hurry, God, to deliver me.
Come quickly to help me, LORD.
2 Let them be disappointed and confounded who seek my soul.
Let those who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace.
3 Let them be turned because of their shame
Who say, “Aha! Aha!”
4 Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you.
Let those who love your salvation continually say,
“Let God be exalted!”
5 But I am poor and needy.
Come to me quickly, God.
You are my help and my deliverer.
LORD, don’t delay.
1 In my distress, I cried to the LORD.
He answered me.
2 Deliver my soul, LORD, from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
3 What will be given to you, and what will be done more to you,
you deceitful tongue?
4 Sharp arrows of the mighty,
with coals of juniper.
5 Woe is me, that I live in Meshech,
that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6 My soul has had her dwelling too long
with him who hates peace.
7 I am for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war.
