Psalm 20 The Message Bible

A Prayer for Victory

20 1  God answer you on the day you crash, The name God-of-Jacob put you out of harm's reach, 2  Send reinforcements from Holy Hill, Dispatch from Zion fresh supplies, 3  Exclaim over your offerings, Celebrate your sacrifices, 4  Give you what your heart desires, Accomplish your plans. 5  When you win, we plan to raise the roof and lead the parade with our banners. May all your wishes come true!

6  That clinches it - help's coming, an answer's on the way, everything's going to work out. 7  See those people polishing their chariots, and those others grooming their horses? But we're making garlands for God our God. 8  The chariots will rust, those horses pull up lame - and we'll be on our feet, standing tall. 9  Make the king a winner, God; the day we call, give us your answer.
