Psalm 20

Deliverance in Battle

For the choir director. A psalm of David.

May the Lord answer you in a day of trouble;(A)
may the name of Jacob’s God protect you.(B)
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and sustain you from Zion.(C)
May he remember all your offerings
and accept your burnt offering.(D)Selah

May he give you what your heart desires(E)
and fulfill your whole purpose.(F)
Let us shout for joy at your victory(G)
and lift the banner in the name of our God.(H)
May the Lord fulfill all your requests.(I)

Now I know that the Lord gives victory to his anointed;(J)
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with mighty victories from his right hand.(K)
Some take pride in chariots, and others in horses,
but we take pride in the name of the Lord our God.(L)
They collapse and fall,
but we rise and stand firm.(M)
Lord, give victory to the king!(N)
May he[a] answer us on the day that we call.
