Salme 3

Tryghed hos Herren

1En sang af David, da han flygtede fra sin søn Absalom.

Åh Herre, mine fjender er så mange,
    de er alle imod mig, de gør mig bange.
        „Gud vil ikke redde ham!” siger de.
Men Herren er mit skjold og min styrke,
    han gav mig modet tilbage.
Jeg råbte til ham om hjælp,
    og han svarede mig fra sit hellige bjerg.
Jeg lagde mig trygt til at sove,
    for Herren skærmede mig med sin hånd.
Jeg bliver ikke overmandet af frygt,
    om så tusinder af fjender omringer mig.
Men jeg råber til Herren:
    „Grib ind, Herre! Red mig, Gud!”
Herren ydmyger alle mine fjender,
    det er ham, der bryder de ondes magt.
Han er den, som redder os.
    Ja, velsign dit folk, Herre!

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.
