Psalm 3

Trust in God under Adversity

A Psalm of David, when he fled from his son Absalom.

1

O Lord, how many are my foes!

Many are rising against me;

2

many are saying to me,

“There is no help for you in God.”Selah

 

3

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

my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.

4

I cry aloud to the Lord,

and he answers me from his holy hill.Selah

 

5

I lie down and sleep;

I wake again, for the Lord sustains me.

6

I am not afraid of ten thousands of people

who have set themselves against me all around.

 

7

Rise up, O Lord!

Deliver me, O my God!

For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;

you break the teeth of the wicked.

 

8

Deliverance belongs to the Lord;

may your blessing be on your people!Selah
