Psalm 20
New International VersionInternational Standard Version
1For the director of music. A psalm of David. May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.1May the LORD answer you in the day of distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.2May he send you help from the sanctuary, and may he sustain you from Zion.
3May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings.3May he remember all your gifts, and may he accept your burnt offerings. Interlude
4May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.4May he give you what your heart desires, and may he fulfill all your plans.
5May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests.5May we shout for joy at your deliverance and unfurl our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD fulfill all your petitions.
6Now this I know: The LORD gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand.6Now I know that the LORD has delivered his anointed; he has answered him from his sanctuary with the strength of his right hand of deliverance.
7Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.7Some boast in chariots, others in horses; but we will boast in the name of the LORD our God.
8They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.8While they bowed down and fell, we arose and stood upright.
9LORD, give victory to the king! Answer us when we call!9Deliver us, LORD! Answer us, our King, on the day we cry out!
