Psalm 20

Prayer for Victory

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1The Lord answer you in the day of trouble!

The name of the God of Jacob protect you!

2May he send you help from the sanctuary,

and give you support from Zion!

3May he remember all your offerings,

and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices!   Selah

4May he grant you your heart's desire,

and fulfil all your plans!

5May we shout for joy over your victory,

and in the name of our God set up our banners!

May the Lord fulfil all your petitions!

6Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed;

he will answer him from his holy heaven

with mighty victories by his right hand.

7Some boast of chariots, and some of horses;

but we boast of the name of the Lord our God.

8They will collapse and fall;

but we shall rise and stand upright.

9Give victory to the king, O Lord;

answer us when we call.a
