Psalms Chapter 3 - New International Version

1. Psalm 3 A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom.

1. O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!

2. Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." [1]

3. But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift [2] up my head.

4. To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill.

5. I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.

6. I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.

7. Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.

8. From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.
