Psalm 20

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1Jehovah answer thee in the day of trouble;

The name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high;

2Send thee help from the sanctuary,

And strengthen thee out of Zion;

3Remember all thy offerings,

And accept thy burnt-sacrifice; Selah

4Grant thee thy heart’s desire,

And fulfil all thy counsel.

5We will triumph in thy salvation,

And in the name of our God we will set up our banners:

Jehovah fulfil all thy petitions.

6Now know I that Jehovah saveth his anointed;

He will answer him from his holy heaven

With the saving strength of his right hand.

7Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;

But we will make mention of the name of Jehovah our God.

8They are bowed down and fallen;

But we are risen, and stand upright.

9Save, Jehovah:

Let the King answer us when we call.

ASV 1901

About American Standard Version

The ASV has long been regarded by many scholars as the most literal English translation since the King James Version—maybe the most literal translation ever. This has made the translation very popular for careful English Bible study, but not for ease of reading. While the KJV was translated entirely from “western manuscripts,” the ASV 1901 was influenced also by the older “eastern manuscripts” that form the basis for most of our modern English translations. Because the ASV 1901 is very difficult to find in print, Logos is pleased to be able to preserve and distribute this significant work. This is an excellent choice for comparative English study.
