Psalms 3

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

Yahweh, how my adversaries have increased!

Many are those who rise up against me.

2 Many there are who say of my soul,

“There is no help for him in God.” Selah.

3 But you, Yahweh, are a shield around me,

my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.

4 I cry to Yahweh with my voice,

and he answers me out of his holy hill. Selah.

5 I laid myself down and slept.

I awakened; for Yahweh sustains me.

6 I will not be afraid of tens of thousands of people

who have set themselves against me on every side.

7 Arise, Yahweh!

Save me, my God!

For you have struck all of my enemies on the cheek bone.

You have broken the teeth of the wicked.

8 Salvation belongs to Yahweh.

Your blessing be on your people. Selah.
