Psalm 20

New English Translation

   For the music director; a psalm of David.
   1 May the LORD answer you when you are in trouble; may the God of Jacob make you secure!
   2 May he send you help from his temple; from Zion may he give you support!
   3 May he take notice of your offerings; may he accept your burnt sacrifice! (Selah)
   4 May he grant your heart's desire; may he bring all your plans to pass!
   5 Then we will shout for joy over your victory; we will rejoice in the name of our God! May the LORD grant all your requests!
   6 Now I am sure that the LORD will deliver his chosen king; he will intervene for him from his holy heavenly temple, and display his mighty ability to deliver.
   7 Some trust in chariots and others in horses, but we depend on the LORD our God.
   8 They will fall down, but we will stand firm.
   9 The LORD will deliver the king; he will answer us when we call to him for help!

King James Version

   To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
   1 The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
   2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;
   3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.
   4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
   5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.
   6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
   7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
   8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
   9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.
