1 (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;

2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;

3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.

4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.

5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.

6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.

9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.

Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 20 Bible commentary...



This psalm is a prayer for the kings of Israel, but with relation to Christ.

- Even the greatest of men may be much in trouble. Neither the crown on the king's head, nor the grace in his heart, would make him free from trouble. Even the greatest of men must be much in prayer. Let none expect benefit by the prayers of the church, or their friends, who are capable of praying for themselves, yet neglect it. Pray that God would protect his person, and preserve his life. That God would enable him to go on in his undertakings for the public good. We may know that God accepts our spiritual sacrifices, if by his Spirit he kindles in our souls a holy fire of piety and love to God. Also, that the Lord would crown his enterprises with success. Our first step to victory in spiritual warfare is to trust only in the mercy and grace of God; all who trust in themselves will soon be cast down. Believers triumph in God, and his revelation of himself to them, by which they distinguish themselves from those that live without God in the world. Those who make God and his name their praise, may make God and his name their trust. This was the case when the pride and power of Jewish unbelief, and pagan idolatry, fell before the sermons and lives of the humble believers in Jesus. This is the case in every conflict with our spiritual enemies, when we engage them in the name, the spirit, and the power of Christ; and this will be the case at the last day, when the world, with the prince of it, shall be brought down and fall; but believers, risen-from the dead, through the resurrection of the Lord, shall stand, and sing his praises in heaven. In Christ's salvation let us rejoice; and set up our banners in the name of the Lord our God, assured that by the saving strength of his right hand we shall be conquerors over every enemy.

Praise Yahweh Who rescues His humble,obedient loving servants who choose to obey His words from holy scripture.Like Joshua let us say with all of our strength "As for me and my house..we will serve Yahweh,Lord. "...and even if its one lone soul,this testimony of loving faith in Yahwehs protection will receive grace and mercy abundantly!Psalm 20 says it,and gives new courage to the reader. Praise Yahweh!

It 's all about the righteous calling on the Lord, he coming to the rescue. And the wicked trusting in things.

Brethren let your name be written in the book of life then the saving strength of his right hand will give super safety to your life as his name is a strong tower for the righteous safety then if God be for us who can be against us His reliance never fail me and he will never fail as failures never be in his divine agenda trust in the Lord those who trust inthe Lord are like mountains that can never be shifted and whatever he does must prosper that is the heritage of the believers who are living in his trust for God s name to be honoured and glorified HALLELUYA AMEN

Rev. Autrey's Psalms Chapter 20 comment on 1/11/2014, 6:07pm...

(Verse 6) "Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed King. He will answwer him from his holy heaven and rescue him by his great power."

Jesus said that the Psalms talk about him. So this is Jesus talking about himself as he defeats death death and raises himself from the dead. Satan tried to destroy him, but he prevailed.

In fact, the whole Bible is about Jesus and the way he saves us. Because if we are not saved, nothing that we can do will be of any value. What good is it to be rescued from temprol trials just to end up in hell because we are not saved. Do you see the point!

If we call ourselves Christians, we must fix our eyes on Jesus, our Savior. We must learn to see his saving works all through the Bible. That is, we must learn to see Jesus in everything that is written about our salvation, even in the Old Testament.

Too, we must understand that Jesus is the way God spoke to us in the days of old, as well as the way he speaks to us today. As it is said, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."

Thanks for reading!
