Psalm 20
New Living Translation Par ▾ 

For the choir director: A psalm of David.

1In times of trouble, may the LORD answer your cry.

May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm.

2May he send you help from his sanctuary

and strengthen you from Jerusalem.a

3May he remember all your gifts

and look favorably on your burnt offerings.


4May he grant your heart’s desires

and make all your plans succeed.

5May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory

and raise a victory banner in the name of our God.

May the LORD answer all your prayers.

6Now I know that the LORD rescues his anointed king.

He will answer him from his holy heaven

and rescue him by his great power.

7Some nations boast of their chariots and horses,

but we boast in the name of the LORD our God.

8Those nations will fall down and collapse,

but we will rise up and stand firm.

9Give victory to our king, O LORD!

Answer our cry for help.
