Psalm 3:1-8

A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son. 3  Jehovah, how are mine adversaries increased! Many are they that rise up against me. 2  Many there are that say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah 3  But thou, O Jehovah, art a shield about me; My glory and the lifter up of my head. 4  I cry unto Jehovah with my voice, And he answereth me out of his holy hill. Selah 5  I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for Jehovah sustaineth me. 6  I will not be afraid of ten thousands of the people That have set themselves against me round about. 7  Arise, O Jehovah; save me, O my God: For thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; Thou hast broken the teeth of the wicked. 8  Salvation belongeth unto Jehovah: Thy blessing be upon thy people. Selah
