Psalm 20
Christian Standard BibleNET Bible
1May the LORD answer you in a day of trouble; may the name of Jacob's God protect you.1For the music director; a psalm of David. May the LORD answer you when you are in trouble; may the God of Jacob make you secure!
2May he send you help from the sanctuary and sustain you from Zion.2May he send you help from his temple; from Zion may he give you support!
3May he remember all your offerings and accept your burnt offering. Selah3May he take notice of your offerings; may he accept your burnt sacrifice! (Selah)
4May he give you what your heart desires and fulfill your whole purpose.4May he grant your heart's desire; may he bring all your plans to pass!
5Let us shout for joy at your victory and lift the banner in the name of our God. May the LORD fulfill all your requests.5Then we will shout for joy over your victory; we will rejoice in the name of our God! May the LORD grant all your requests!
6Now I know that the LORD gives victory to his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty victories from his right hand.6Now 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.
7Some take pride in chariots, and others in horses, but we take pride in the name of the LORD our God.7Some trust in chariots and others in horses, but we depend on the LORD our God.
8They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand firm.8They will fall down, but we will stand firm.
9LORD, give victory to the king! May he answer us on the day that we call.9The LORD will deliver the king; he will answer us when we call to him for help!
