Psalm 3:1–8

Lord, how many are my foes!

How many rise up against me!

Many are saying of me,

“God will not deliver him.ab

But you, Lord, are a shieldb around me,

my glory, the One who lifts my head high.c

I call out to the Lord,d

and he answers me from his holy mountain.e

I lie down and sleep;f

I wake again,g because the Lord sustains me.

I will not fearh though tens of thousands

assail me on every side.i

Arise,j Lord!

Deliver me,k my God!

Strikel all my enemies on the jaw;

break the teethm of the wicked.

From the Lord comes deliverance.n

May your blessingo be on your people.
