The Church blesseth the king in his exploits.
Psalms 20:1 Unto the end. A psalm for David. May the Lord hear thee in the day of tribulation: may the name of the God of Jacob protect thee. Psalms 20:2 May he send thee help from the sanctuary: and defend thee out of Sion. Psalms 20:3 May he be mindful of all thy sacrifices: and may thy whole burntoffering be made fat. Psalms 20:4 May he give thee according to thy own heart; and confirm all thy counsels. Psalms 20:5 We will rejoice in thy salvation; and in the name of our God we shall be exalted. Psalms 20:6 The Lord fulfil all thy petitions: now have I known that the Lord hath saved his anointed. He will hear him from his holy heaven: the salvation of his right hand is in powers.
Her confidence in God's succour.
Psalms 20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will call upon the name of the Lord, our God. Psalms 20:8 They are bound, and have fallen: but we are risen, and are set upright. Psalms 20:9 O Lord, save the king: and hear us in the day that we shall call upon thee.
