Psalm 3 [a]

A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom.
1  Lord, how many are my foes!
    How many rise up against me!
2  Many are saying of me,
    “God will not deliver him.” [b]
3  But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
    my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4  I call out to the Lord,
    and he answers me from his holy mountain.
5  I lie down and sleep;
    I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
6  I will not fear though tens of thousands
    assail me on every side.
7  Arise, Lord!
    Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
    break the teeth of the wicked.
8  From the Lord comes deliverance.
    May your blessing be on your people.
