Psalm 3


Morning Prayer of Trust in God.

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

1 O Lord, how amy adversaries have increased!

Many are rising up against me.

2 Many are saying 1of my soul,

“There is no 2adeliverance for him in God.”


3 But You, O Lord, are aa shield about me,

My bglory, and the One who clifts my head.

4 I was crying to the Lord with my voice,

And He aanswered me from bHis holy 1mountain.


5 1I alay down and slept;

I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.

6 I will anot be afraid of ten thousands of people

Who have bset themselves against me round about.

7 aArise, O Lord; bsave me, O my God!

For You 1have csmitten all my enemies on the 2cheek;

You 3have dshattered the teeth of the wicked.

8 1aSalvation belongs to the Lord;

Your bblessing 2be upon Your people!
