Psalm 20 A Prayer for Thee
The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble;
the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
Send thee help from the sanctuary,
and strengthen thee out of Zion;
Remember all thy offerings,
and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.
Grant thee according to thine own heart,
and fulfil all thy counsel.
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.
When reading the Psalms in order, Psalm 20 immediately leaps out as the first Psalm to speak directly to
the reader as a prayer for the reader.
Every highlighted "thee" and "thy" in the above is a translation of the
eleventh letter Kaph suffixed to the root. The
standard numerical weight
of Kaph is 20, corresponding to the index of the Psalm. Here's an image of the first six verses, with
the suffixed Kaph in red:
I haven't seen any other Psalm with a concentration of Kaphs like this, and what is particularly interesting
is that there is a similar pattern found on Spoke 20 of the Bible Wheel, in the little book of III John:
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be
in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee,
even as thou walkest in the truth.
This verse is strongly linked to Psalm 42 (Spoke 20, Cycle 2) via the
set (health, soul) which forms a near KeyLink with Proverbs on Spoke 20.
The primary correlation of this Psalm is with
the 20th letter Resh, It should also be noted that Kaph and is of the
same Reduction Class as Resh which, along with Beyt, is of the same
Reduction Class as Kaph (= 1+1 = 2+0+0 = 2).
These three letters spell (Rekev, Chariot - cf. GR 222)
spoken of in verse 7:
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. Some trust in
chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the
LORD our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand
upright. Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.
