Psalm 3

Morning Prayer of Trust in God.

A Psalm of David, when [a]he fled from Absalom his son.

1O Lord, how my adversaries have increased!
Many are rising up against me.
Many are saying [b]of my soul,
“There is no [c]deliverance for him in God.” [d]Selah.

But You, O Lord, are a shield about me,
My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
I was crying to the Lord with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy [e]mountain. Selah.
[f]I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me round about.

Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God!
For You [g]have smitten all my enemies on the [h]cheek;
You [i]have shattered the teeth of the wicked.
[j]Salvation belongs to the Lord;
Your blessing [k]be upon Your people! Selah.

Psalm 3

Psalm 3

A psalm of David when he ran away from his son Absalom.

Lord, I have so many enemies!
    So many people are rising up against me!
Many are saying about me,
    “God will not save him.”

Lord, you are like a shield that keeps me safe.
    You bring me honor. You help me win the battle.
I call out to the Lord.
    He answers me from his holy mountain.

I lie down and sleep.
    I wake up again, because the Lord takes care of me.
I won’t be afraid even though tens of thousands
    attack me on every side.

Lord, rise up!
    My God, save me!
Strike all my enemies in the face.
    Break the teeth of sinful people.

Lord, you are the one who saves.
    May your blessing be on your people.
