Psalm 20 1 

20:1 For the music director; a psalm of David.

May the Lord answer 2  you 3  when you are in trouble; 4 

may the God of Jacob 5  make you secure!

20:2 May he send you help from his temple; 6 

from Zion may he give you support!

20:3 May he take notice 7  of your offerings;

may he accept 8  your burnt sacrifice! (Selah)

20:4 May he grant your heart’s desire; 9 

may he bring all your plans to pass! 10 

20:5 Then we will shout for joy over your 11  victory;

we will rejoice 12  in the name of our God!

May the Lord grant all your requests!

20:6 Now I am sure 13  that the Lord will deliver 14  his chosen king; 15 

he will intervene for him 16  from his holy heavenly temple, 17 

and display his mighty ability to deliver. 18 

20:7 Some trust in chariots and others in horses, 19 

but we 20  depend on 21  the Lord our God.

20:8 They will fall down, 22 

but we 23  will stand firm. 24 

20:9 The Lord will deliver the king; 25 

he will answer us 26  when we call to him for help! 27
