Amplified Bible

Psalm 3

Morning Prayer of Trust in God.

A Psalm of David. When he fled from Absalom his son.

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

Many are saying of me,
“There is no help [no salvation] for him in God.” [a]Selah.


But You, O Lord, are a shield for me,
My glory [and my honor], and the One who lifts my head.

With my voice I was crying to the Lord,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.

I lay down and slept [safely];
I awakened, for the Lord sustains me.

I will not be intimidated or afraid of the ten thousands
Who have set themselves against me all around.


Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God!
For You have struck all my enemies on the cheek;
You have shattered the teeth of the wicked.

Salvation belongs to the Lord;
May Your blessing be upon Your people. Selah.

Salmos 3

Salmo de David, cuando huía de su hijo Absalón.

1Muchos son, Señor, mis enemigos;
    muchos son los que se me oponen,
y muchos los que de mí aseguran:
    «Dios no lo salvará». Selah

Pero tú, Señor, me rodeas cual escudo;
    tú eres mi gloria;
    ¡tú mantienes en alto mi cabeza!
Clamo al Señor a voz en cuello,
    y desde su monte santo él me responde. Selah

Yo me acuesto, me duermo y vuelvo a despertar,
    porque el Señor me sostiene.
No me asustan los numerosos escuadrones
    que me acosan por doquier.

¡Levántate, Señor!
    ¡Ponme a salvo, Dios mío!
¡Rómpeles la quijada a mis enemigos!
    ¡Rómpeles los dientes a los malvados!

Tuya es, Señor, la salvación;
    ¡envía tu bendición sobre tu pueblo! Selah
