Psalms 20 – YHWH Does!

Many translations of Psalms 20 use words that don’t seem very “strong” to me. That is, the Lord may help you, but then again (to my mind) He may not.

May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
Psalms 20:1 ESV

May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high!
Psalms 20:1 NASB

May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
Psalms 20:1 NIV

I like the positiveness of the TS2009 translation! He does!

יהוה does answer you in the day of distress!
The Name of the Elohim of Ya‛aqoḇ does set you on high!
He does send you help from the set-apart place,
And does uphold you from Tsiyon!
He does remember all your offerings,
And does accept your ascending offering! Selah.

He does give you according to your heart,
And fills all your plans!
We sing of Your deliverance,
And in the Name of our Elohim we set up a banner!
יהוה does fill all your requests!

Now I know that יהוה shall save His Anointed;
He answers him from His set-apart heavens
With the saving might of His right hand.

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses,
But we remember the Name of יהוה our Elohim.
They, they have bowed down and fallen;
But we have risen and are established.

Save, יהוה!
Let the Sovereign answer us in the day we call.

Tehillim (Psalms) 20 TS2009

Are you following God's plan for your life?    
   You should.
      Your plan is not going to work.
      It is a really, really bad plan.
      Please come to Jesus to escape your plan!

Most people are WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!

Jesus is coming.
   Are you ready to meet Him?
   Give your life to Jesus Christ.
   Time is running out.
