Psalm 20: complete, commentary


CommentIn the form of a greeting for the king to whom the psalmist is linked, in Psalm 20 we speak of the help that will come from God to the head of his people from his heavenly sanctuary, or from heaven, to get out of the difficulty in which he found himself thanks to the help of the Almighty Lord.
