Psalms 3:1-8

  • Confidence in God despite danger

    • ‘Why so many adversaries?’ (1)

    • “Salvation belongs to Jehovah” (8)

A melody of David when he was fleeing from his son Abʹsa·lom.+ 3  O Jehovah, why have my adversaries become so numerous?+ Why are so many rising up against me?+   Many are saying about me:* “God will not save him.”+ (Selah)*   But you, O Jehovah, are a shield around me,+My glory+ and the One who lifts up my head.+   I will call aloud to Jehovah,And he will answer me from his holy mountain.+ (Selah)   I will lie down and sleep;And I will wake up in safety,For Jehovah continues to support me.+   I am not afraid of the tens of thousandsLined up against me on every side.+   Rise up, O Jehovah! Save me,+ O my God! For you will strike all my enemies on the jaw;You will break the teeth of the wicked.+   Salvation belongs to Jehovah.+ Your blessing is upon your people. (Selah)


Or “my soul.”
