Psalm 20 Revised Standard Version

A Prayer for Victory

20 1  To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. The Lord answer you in the day of trouble! 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 fulfil all your plans! 5  May we shout for joy over your victory, and in the name of our God set up our banners! May the Lord fulfil all your petitions!

6  Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty victories by his right hand. 7  Some boast of chariots, and some of horses; but we boast of the name of the Lord our God. 8  They will collapse and fall; but we shall rise and stand upright. 9  Give victory to the king, O Lord; answer us when we call.
