Psalms 20

LEB(i) 1 For the music director. A psalm of David.*
May Yahweh answer you in the day of trouble. May the name of Jacob's God protect* you. 2 May he send you help* from the sanctuary, and from Zion may he sustain you. 3 May he remember all your offerings, and your burnt offering may he regard favorably.* 4 May he give to you your heart's desire,* and your every plan may he fulfill. Selah 5 May we shout for joy over your victory, and in the name of our God may we set up banners. May Yahweh fulfill all your requests. 6 Now I know that Yahweh will help his anointed.* He will answer him from his holy heaven with the victorious power of his right hand. 7 Some boast in chariots and others in horses,* but we boast in the name of Yahweh, our God. 8 They will collapse and fall, and we will rise and stand firm. 9 Rescue,* O Yahweh. Let the king answer us when we call.
