Psalm 3
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

A Davidic Psalm, when he fled from his son Absalom.

God Delivers His Servants

1LORD, I have so many persecutors!

Many are rising up against me!

2Many are saying about me,

“God will never deliver him!”


3But you, LORD, are a shield around me,

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

4I cry alouda to the LORD,

and he answers me from his holy mountain.


5I lie down and sleep,

I wake up, because the LORD sustains me.

6I will not fear multitudes ofb people,

who set themselves against me on every side.

7Arise, LORD!

Deliver me, my God!

For you strike the jaw of all my enemies,

and you break the teeth of the wicked.

8Deliverance comes from the LORD!

May your blessing be on your people.


a 3:4 Lit. with my voice
b 3:6 Or ten thousand
