Psalm 20

   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!
