Psalm 3


Save Me, O My God



 A PSALM OF DAVID, WHEN HE FLED FROM ABSALOM HIS SON. 


      1 O LORD, how many are my foes! 

      Many are rising against me; 

      2 many are saying of my soul, 

      “There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah 


      3 But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, 

      my glory, and the lifter of my head. 

      4 I cried aloud to the LORD, 

      and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah 


      5 I lay down and slept; 

      I woke again, for the LORD sustained me. 

      6 I will not be afraid of many thousands of people 

      who have set themselves against me all around. 


      7 Arise, O LORD! 

      Save me, O my God! 

      For you strike all my enemies on the cheek; 

      you break the teeth of the wicked. 


      8 Salvation belongs to the LORD; 

      your blessing be on your people! Selah
