20:1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.

20:2 the Lord answer thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high;

20:3 Send forth thy help from the sanctuary, and support thee out of Zion;

20:4 Receive the memorial of all thy meal-offerings, and accept the fat of thy burnt-sacrifice; Selah

20:5 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.

20:6 We will shout for joy in thy victory, and in the name of our God we will set up our standards; the Lord fulfil all thy petitions.

20:7 Now know I that the Lord saveth His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the mighty acts of His saving right hand.

20:8 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will make mention of the name of the Lord our God.

20:9 They are bowed down and fallen; but we are risen, and stand upright.

20:10 Save, the Lord; let the King answer us in the day that we call.
