Psalm 20

Trust in the Name of the Lord Our God

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1 May the LORD 1answer you in the day of trouble! May 2the name of the God of Jacob 3protect you!
2 May he send you help from 4the sanctuary and give you support from 5Zion!
3 May he 6remember all your offerings and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
4 May he 7grant you your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans!
5 May we shout for joy over 8your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our 9banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions!
6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with 10the saving might of his right hand.
7 Some trust in 11chariots and some in 12horses, 13but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.
9 O LORD, save 14the king! May he answer us when we call.
