Psalms 20:1-9

Psalm 20

For the music director; a psalm of David.

20:1 May the Lord answer you when you are in trouble;

may the God of Jacob make you secure!

20:2 May he send you help from his temple;

from Zion may he give you support!

20:3 May he take notice of your offerings;

may he accept your burnt sacrifice! (Selah)

20:4 May he grant your heart’s desire;

may he bring all your plans to pass!

20:5 Then we will shout for joy over your victory;

we will rejoice in the name of our God!

May the Lord grant all your requests!

20:6 Now I am sure that the Lord will deliver his chosen king;

he will intervene for him from his holy heavenly temple,

and display his mighty ability to deliver.

20:7 Some trust in chariots and others in horses,

but we depend on the Lord our God.

20:8 They will fall down,

but we will stand firm.

20:9 The Lord will deliver the king;

he will answer us when we call to him for help!
