Psalm 20:1-9

(Of the Director; a psalm of David’s.) 20  Jehovah answer you on a day of crisis,the name of Israel’s God set you out of reach of harm, 2  Send you help from sacred groundand from Sion give you support, 3  Remember all your oblationsand make much of your burnt-offering, (Selah) 4  Give you what you have at heartand bring fulfillment to all your purposes. 5  We will shout over your victoryand fly our colors in the name of our God;Jehovah give fulfillment to all your requests. 6  Now I know that Jehovah gives victory to his anointed;he will answer him from his hallowed heavenswith the mighty saving acts of his right hand. 7  Chariots these and ponies those,and we the name of our God Jehovah commemorate. 8  They have stooped and fallen,but we are up and keep our feet. 9  Jehovah, make the king victoriousand answer us on the day when we call.
