Psalm 20

Prayer for victory over enemies.

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

20 Jehovah answer thee in the day of trouble;
The name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high;
2 Send thee help from the sanctuary,
And [a]strengthen thee out of Zion;
3 Remember all thy [b]offerings,
And [c]accept thy burnt-sacrifice; Selah
4 Grant thee thy heart’s desire,
And fulfil all thy counsel.
5 We will triumph in thy [d]salvation,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners:
Jehovah fulfil all thy petitions.
6 Now know I that Jehovah saveth his anointed;
He will answer him from his holy heaven
With the saving strength of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will make mention of the name of Jehovah our God.
8 They are bowed down and fallen;
But we are risen, and stand upright.
9 Save, Jehovah:
Let the King answer us when we call.
