Psalms

Chapter 20

1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.
2 HaShem answer thee in the day of trouble; the name of the G-d of Jacob set thee up on high;
3 Send forth thy help from the sanctuary, and support thee out of Zion;
4 Receive the memorial of all thy meal-offerings, and accept the fat of thy burnt-sacrifice; Selah
5 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
6 We will shout for joy in thy victory, and in the name of our G-d we will set up our standards; HaShem fulfil all thy petitions.
7 Now know I that HaShem saveth His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the mighty acts of His saving right hand.
8 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will make mention of the name of HaShem our G-d.
9 They are bowed down and fallen; but we are risen, and stand upright.
10 Save, HaShem; let the King answer us in the day that we call.
