Psalm 20 BBE/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 May the Lord give ear to you in the day of trouble; may you be placed on high by the name of the God of Jacob; 1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May he send you help from the holy place, and give you strength from Zion; 2 May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.
3 May he keep all your offerings in mind, and be pleased with the fat of your burned offerings; (Selah.) 3 May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. "Selah"
4 May he give you your heart's desire, and put all your purposes into effect. 4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
5 We will be glad in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will put up our flags: may the Lord give you all your requests. 5 We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests.
6 Now am I certain that the Lord gives salvation to his king; he will give him an answer from his holy heaven with the strength of salvation in his right hand. 6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand.
7 Some put their faith in carriages and some in horses; but we will be strong in the name of the Lord our God. 7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 They are bent down and made low; but we have been lifted up. 8 They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
9 Come to our help, Lord: let the king give ear to our cry. 9 O LORD, save the king! Answer us when we call!
