Psalm 20 King James Version

A Prayer for Victory

20 1 The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend [1] thee; 2 Send thee help [2] from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; 3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept [3] thy burnt sacrifice; Selah. 4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel. 5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the Lord fulfil all thy petitions.

6 Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy [4] heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. 7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. 8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. 9 Save, Lord: let the king hear us when we call.


[1] 20:1 defend...: Heb. set thee on an high place

[2] 20:2 thee help: Heb. thy help

[3] 20:3 accept: Heb. turn to ashes: or, make fat

[4] 20:6 his holy...: Heb. the heaven of his holiness
