Psalms 20

1

TO THE CHOIRMASTER. A PSALM OF DAVID. May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!

2

May he send you help from the sanctuary and give you support from Zion!

3

May he remember all your offerings and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah

4

May he grant you your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans!

5

May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions!

6

Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might 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 collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.

9

O LORD, save the king! May he answer us when we call.
