Psalm 3

Trust in God under Adversity

A Psalm of David, when he fled from his son Absalom.
1Lord, how many are my foes!
   Many are rising against me;
2 many are saying to me,
   ‘There is no help for you* in God.’

3 But you, O Lord, are a shield around me,
   my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.
4 I cry aloud to the Lord,
   and he answers me from his holy hill.

5 I lie down and sleep;
   I wake again, for the Lord sustains me.
6 I am not afraid of tens of thousands of people
   who have set themselves against me all around.

7 Rise up, O Lord!
   Deliver me, O my God!
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
   you break the teeth of the wicked.

8 Deliverance belongs to the Lord;
   may your blessing be on your people!
