Psalm 20

Prayer for Victory

To the leader. A Psalm of David.
1 The Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
   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 favour your burnt sacrifices.
          Selah


4 May he grant you your heart’s desire,
   and fulfil all your plans.
5 May we shout for joy over your victory,
   and in the name of our God set up our banners.
May the Lord fulfil all your petitions.


6 Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed;
   he will answer him from his holy heaven
   with mighty victories by his right hand.
7 Some take pride in chariots, and some in horses,
   but our pride is in the name of the Lord our God.
8 They will collapse and fall,
   but we shall rise and stand upright.


9 Give victory to the king, O Lord;
   answer us when we call.*

Psalm 21

Thanksgiving for Victory

To the leader. A Psalm of David.
1 In your strength the king rejoices, O Lord,
   and in your help how greatly he exults!
2 You have given him his heart’s desire,
   and have not withheld the request of his lips.
          Selah
3 For you meet him with rich blessings;
   you set a crown of fine gold on his head.
4 He asked you for life; you gave it to him—
   length of days for ever and ever.
5 His glory is great through your help;
   splendour and majesty you bestow on him.
6 You bestow on him blessings for ever;
   you make him glad with the joy of your presence.
7 For the king trusts in the Lord,
   and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.


8 Your hand will find out all your enemies;
   your right hand will find out those who hate you.
9 You will make them like a fiery furnace
   when you appear.
The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath,
   and fire will consume them.
10 You will destroy their offspring from the earth,
   and their children from among humankind.
11 If they plan evil against you,
   if they devise mischief, they will not succeed.
12 For you will put them to flight;
   you will aim at their faces with your bows.


13 Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength!
   We will sing and praise your power.

Psalm 23

The Divine Shepherd

A Psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
2   He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;*
3   he restores my soul.*
He leads me in right paths*
   for his name’s sake.


4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,*
   I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
   your rod and your staff—
   they comfort me.


5 You prepare a table before me
   in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows.
6 Surely* goodness and mercy* shall follow me
   all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
   my whole life long.*
