Psalm 3
New American Standard Bible►► 

Morning Prayer of Trust in God.

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

1LORD, how my enemies have increased!

Many are rising up against me.

2Many are saying of my soul,

“There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah

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

My glory, and the One who lifts my head.

4I was crying out to the LORD with my voice,

And He answered me from His holy [b]mountain. Selah

5[c]I 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 all around.

7Arise, LORD; save me, my God!

For You [d]have struck all my enemies on the [e]cheek;

You [f]have shattered the teeth of the wicked.

8[g]Salvation belongs to the LORD;

May Your blessing [h]be upon Your people! Selah
