Psalm 3
New Living TranslationEnglish Standard Version
1O LORD, I have so many enemies; so many are against me.1O LORD, how many are my foes! Many are rising against me;
2So many are saying, “God will never rescue him!” Interlude2many are saying of my soul, “There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah
3But you, O LORD, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.3But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.
4I cried out to the LORD, and he answered me from his holy mountain. Interlude4I cried aloud to the LORD, and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah
5I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the LORD was watching over me.5I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the LORD sustained me.
6I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side.6I will not be afraid of many thousands of people who have set themselves against me all around.
7Arise, O LORD! Rescue me, my God! Slap all my enemies in the face! Shatter the teeth of the wicked!7Arise, O LORD! Save me, O my God! For you strike all my enemies on the cheek; you break the teeth of the wicked.
8Victory comes from you, O LORD. May you bless your people. Interlude8Salvation belongs to the LORD; your blessing be on your people! Selah
