Psalm 20 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Prayer for Victory over Enemies.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

20 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high!
May He send you help from the sanctuary
And support you from Zion!
May He remember all your meal offerings
And find your burnt offering [a]acceptable! [b]Selah.

May He grant you your heart’s desire
And fulfill all your [c]counsel!
[d]We will sing for joy over your [e]victory,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners.
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.

Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the [f]saving strength of His right hand.
Some [g]boast in chariots and some in horses,
But we [h]will boast in the name of the Lord, our God.
They have bowed down and fallen,
But we have risen and stood upright.
[i]Save, O Lord;
May the King answer us in the day we call.
