Ɔmma wo nea ehia wo, na wo nhyehyɛe nyinaa nyɛ ye. Na yɛateɛm adi ahurusi wɔ wo nkonimdi no ho na yɛakamfo Onyankopɔn wɔ nea wayɛ ama wo no ho. Awurade nyɛ w’abisade nyinaa mma wo.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 20

Prayer for Victory over Enemies.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1[a]May the Lord answer you (David) in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high [and defend you in battle]!

May He send you help from the sanctuary (His dwelling place)
And support and strengthen you from Zion!

May He remember all your meal offerings
And accept your burnt offering. Selah.

May He grant you your heart’s desire
And fulfill all your plans.

We will sing joyously over your victory,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners.
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.

Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
But we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God.

They have bowed down and fallen,
But we have risen and stood upright.

O Lord, save [the [b]king];
May the [c]King answer us in the day we call.
