Psalm 3

2 How many are my foes, O LORD!

 How many are rising up against me!

 3 How many are saying about me,

 “There is no help for him in God.”


 4 But you, LORD, are a shield about me,

 my glory, who lift up my head.

 5 I cry aloud to the LORD.

 From his holy mountain he answers me.

6 I lie down, I sleep and I wake,

 for the LORD upholds me.

 7 I will not fear even thousands of people

 who are ranged on every side against me.

Arise, LORD; save me, my God,

 8 you who strike all my foes on the cheek,

 you who break the teeth of the wicked!

 9 Salvation belongs to the LORD;

 may your blessing be on your people!
