Psalm 20


For the director of music.  A psalm of David.



1                    May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.


2                    May He send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.


3                    May He remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings.



4                    May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.


5                    We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God.  May the LORD grant all your requests.


6                    Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He answers him from His holy heaven with the saving power 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 are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.


9                    O LORD, save the king!  Answer [a] us when we call!

[a]9 Or save! / O King, answer
