Psalm 20

Psalm 20

Trust in the Name of the Lord Our God
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
1May the Lord #[Gen. 35:3] answer you in the day of trouble!
May #Prov. 18:10 the name of the God of Jacob #Ps. 59:1; 69:29protect you!
2May he send you help from #Ps. 73:17; 2 Chr. 20:8 the sanctuary
and give you support from #Ps. 128:5Zion!
3May he #[Acts 10:4]remember all your offerings
and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
4May he #Ps. 21:2grant you your heart’s desire
and fulfill all your plans!
5May we shout for joy over #Ps. 9:14 your salvation,
and in the name of our God set up our #Ps. 60:4; Song 6:4, 10banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!
6Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with #[Ps. 28:8]the saving might of his right hand.
7Some trust in #Isa. 31:1; 36:9 chariots and some in #Prov. 21:31 horses,
# [1 Sam. 17:45; 2 Chr. 32:8] but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
8They collapse and fall,
but we rise and stand upright.
9O Lord, save #Ps. 48:2the king!
May he answer us when we call.
