Psalms 3

1 LORD, how my adversaries are increased! Many are those who rise up against me.

2 Many there are who say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.

3 But thou, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory and he who lifts up of my head.

4 I cry to LORD with my voice, and he answers me out of his holy hill. Selah.

5 I laid down and slept. I awoke, for LORD sustains me.

6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of the people who have set themselves against me round about.

7 Arise, O LORD. Save me, O my God. For thou have smitten all my enemies upon the cheek bone. Thou have broken the teeth of the wicked.

8 Salvation belongs to LORD. Thy blessing be upon thy people. Selah.
