Psalm 20

Psalm 20[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
    may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from the sanctuary
    and grant you support from Zion.
May he remember all your sacrifices
    and accept your burnt offerings.[b]
May he give you the desire of your heart
    and make all your plans succeed.
May we shout for joy over your victory
    and lift up our banners in the name of our God.

May the Lord grant all your requests.

Now this I know:
    The Lord gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
    with the victorious power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
    but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
    but we rise up and stand firm.
Lord, give victory to the king!
    Answer us when we call!

诗篇 20

祈求胜利

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1愿耶和华应允你患难时的呼求。愿雅各的上帝保护你。
愿祂从圣所帮助你,从锡安山扶持你。
愿祂喜悦你献的祭物,悦纳你的燔祭。(细拉)
愿祂使你心愿得偿、计划实现。
我们要因你得胜而高声欢唱,高举耶和华的旌旗。愿耶和华答应你一切的祈求。
现在我知道耶和华拯救祂膏立的王,祂从圣天之上应允他,用右手的大能拯救他。
有人靠战车,有人靠战马,但我们靠的是我们的上帝耶和华的名。
他们都一败涂地,我们却屹立不倒。
耶和华啊,求你拯救你立的王。我们呼求的时候,求你垂听。
