Psalm 3
NASB 1977►► 
Morning Prayer of Trust in God.

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

     1O Lord, how my adversaries have increased!
            Many are rising up against me.

     2Many are saying of my soul,
            “There is no deliverance for him in God.” Selah.

     3But Thou, O LORD, art a shield about me,
            My glory, and the One who lifts my head.

     4I was crying to the LORD with my voice,
            And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.

     5I lay down and slept;
            I awoke, for the LORD sustains me.

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

     7Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God!
            For Thou hast smitten all my enemies on the cheek;
            Thou hast shattered the teeth of the wicked.

     8Salvation belongs to the LORD;
            Thy blessing be upon Thy people! Selah.
