Psalm 20

1 May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!
   May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
   and give you support from Zion!
3 May he remember all your offerings
   and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices!
4 May he grant you your heart's desire
   and fulfill all your plans!
5 May we shout for joy over your salvation,
   and in the name of our God set up our banners!
   May the LORD fulfill all your petitions!
6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;
   he will answer him from his holy heaven
   with the saving might of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
   but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 They collapse and fall,
   but we rise and stand upright.
9 O LORD, save the king!
   May he answer us when we call.
