Psalms 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.
Selah
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 us when we call!
