20:1 <To the chief music-maker. A Psalm. Of David.> May the Lord give ear to you in the day of trouble; may you be placed on high by the name of the God of Jacob;
20:2 May he send you help from the holy place, and give you strength from Zion;
20:3 May he keep all your offerings in mind, and be pleased with the fat of your burned offerings; (Selah.)
20:4 May he give you your heart's desire, and put all your purposes into effect.
20:5 We will be glad in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will put up our flags: may the Lord give you all your requests.
20:6 Now am I certain that the Lord gives salvation to his king; he will give him an answer from his holy heaven with the strength of salvation in his right hand.
20:7 Some put their faith in carriages and some in horses; but we will be strong in the name of the Lord our God.
20:8 They are bent down and made low; but we have been lifted up.
20:9 Come to our help, Lord: let the king give ear to our cry.
