Psalm 3
1 ¶ LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. 2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah. 3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. 4 ¶ I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah. 5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me. 6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about. 7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. 8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
1 O LORD, how are my foes increased! Against me many rise. 2 Many say of my soul, For him In God no succour lies. 3 Yet thou my shield and glory art, The uplifter of mine head. 4 I cried, and from his holy hill The Lord me answer made. 5 I laid me down and slept, I waked; For God sustained me. 6 I will not fear though thousands ten Set round against me be. 7 Arise, O Lord; save me, my God; For thou hast struck my foes Upon the cheek; the wicked's teeth Hast broken by thy blows. 8 Salvation surely doth belong Unto the Lord alone; Thy blessing, Lord, for evermore Thy people is upon.
