Lord, how numerous are my enemies :
many they are that rise against me.
Many there are that talk of me and say :
There is no help for him in his God.
But you, Lord, are about me as a shield :
you are my glory, and the lifter up of my head.
I cry to the Lord with a loud voice :
and he answers me from his holy hill.
I lay myself down and sleep :
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
Therefore I will not be afraid
of the multitudes of the nations :
who have set themselves against me on every side.
Arise, Lord, and deliver me, O my God :
for you will strike all my enemies upon the cheek,
you will break the teeth of the ungodly.
Deliverance belongs to the Lord :
O let your blessing be upon your people.
