Psalm 20
NET BibleEnglish Standard Version
1For the music director; a psalm of David. May the LORD answer you when you are in trouble; may the God of Jacob make you secure! 1May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
2May he send you help from his temple; from Zion may he give you support! 2May he send you help from the sanctuary and give you support from Zion!
3May he take notice of your offerings; may he accept your burnt sacrifice! (Selah) 3May he remember all your offerings and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
4May he grant your heart's desire; may he bring all your plans to pass! 4May he grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans!
5Then we will shout for joy over your victory; we will rejoice in the name of our God! May the LORD grant all your requests! 5May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions!
6Now I am sure that the LORD will deliver his chosen king; he will intervene for him from his holy heavenly temple, and display his mighty ability to deliver. 6Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand.
7Some trust in chariots and others in horses, but we depend on the LORD our God. 7Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8They will fall down, but we will stand firm. 8They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.
9The LORD will deliver the king; he will answer us when we call to him for help! 9O LORD, save the king! May he answer us when we call.
