Psalm 20
New American Standard Bible►► 

Prayer for Victory over Enemies.

For the music director. A Psalm of David.

1May the LORD answer you on a day of trouble!

May the name of the God of Jacob [a]protect you!

2May He send you help from the sanctuary,

And support you from Zion!

3May He remember all your meal offerings

And [b]accept your burnt offering! Selah

4May He grant you your heart’s desire

And fulfill your whole plan!

5[c]We will sing for joy over your [d]victory,

And in the name of our God we will set up our banners.

May the LORD fulfill all your desires.

6Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed;

He will answer him from His holy heaven

With the [e]saving strength of His right hand.

7Some praise their chariots and some their horses,

But we will praise the name of the LORD, our God.

8They have bowed down and fallen,

But we have risen and stood upright.

9[f]Save, LORD;

May the King answer us on the day we call.

[a] 1 Lit make you high and inaccessible
[b] 3 Lit consider fat
[c] 5 Or Let’s sing
[d] 5 Or salvation
[e] 6 Or mighty deeds of the victory of His right hand
[f] 9 Or O LORD, save the king; answer us
