Psalm 20 English Standard Version

A Prayer for Victory

20 1  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.
