Psalms - Chapter 20

1

For the director of music. A psalm of David. May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.


2

May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.


3

May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. Selah


4

May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.


5

We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests.


6

Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand.


7

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.


8

They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.


9

O LORD, save the king! Answer us when we call!
