Psalm 3

Psalm 3

A psalm of David,

regarding the time David fled from his son



O Lord, I have so many enemies;

so many are against me.

So many are saying,

“God will never rescue him!”


But you, O Lord, are a shield around me;

you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.

I cried out to the Lord,

and he answered me from his holy mountain.


I lay down and slept,

yet I woke up in safety,

for the Lord was watching over me.

I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies,

who surround me on every side.

Arise, O Lord!

Rescue me, my God!

Slap all my enemies in the face!

Shatter the teeth of the wicked!

Victory comes from you, O Lord.

May you bless your people.
