|<< Psalm 20 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
[For the choir director; a psalm by David.] The LORD will answer you in times of trouble. The name of the God of Jacob will protect you.
2He will send you help from his holy place and support you from Zion.
3He will remember all your grain offerings and look with favor on your burnt offerings. [Selah]
4He will give you your heart's desire and carry out all your plans.
5We will joyfully sing about your victory. We will wave our flags in the name of our God. The LORD will fulfill all your requests.
6Now I know that the LORD will give victory to his anointed king. He will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty deeds of his powerful hand.
7Some [rely] on chariots and others on horses, but we will boast in the name of the LORD our God.
8They will sink to their knees and fall, but we will rise and stand firm.
9Give victory to the king, O LORD. Answer us when we call.
