Psalm 20

1 For the leader. A psalm of David: May ADONAI answer you in times of distress, may the name of the God of Ya'akov protect you.
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary and give you support from Tziyon.
3 May he be reminded by all your grain offerings and accept the fat of your burnt offerings. (Selah)
4 May he grant you your heart's desire and bring all your plans to success.
5 Then we will shout for joy at your victory and fly our flags in the name of our God. May ADONAI fulfill all your requests.
6 Now I know that ADONAI gives victory to his anointed one -he will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty victories by his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we praise the name of ADONAI our God.
8 They will crumple and fall, but we will arise and stand erect.
9 Give victory, ADONAI! Let the King answer us the day we call.
