|<< Psalm 3 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
[A psalm by David when he fled from his son Absalom.] O LORD, look how my enemies have increased! Many are attacking me.
2Many are saying about me, "Even with God [on his side], he won't be victorious." [Selah]
3But you, O LORD, are a shield that surrounds me. You are my glory. You hold my head high.
4I call aloud to the LORD, and he answers me from his holy mountain. [Selah]
5I lie down and sleep. I wake up again because the LORD continues to support me.
6I am not afraid of the tens of thousands who have taken positions against me on all sides.
7Arise, O LORD! Save me, O my God! You have slapped all my enemies in the face. You have smashed the teeth of wicked people.
8Victory belongs to the LORD! May your blessing rest on your people. [Selah]
