Psalm 3

Psalm 3

Psalm 3
A psalm of David when he ran away from his son Absalom.
1 Lord, I have so many enemies!
So many people are rising up against me!
2Many are saying about me,
“God will not save him.”
3 Lord, you are like a shield that keeps me safe.
You bring me honor. You help me win the battle.
4I call out to the Lord.
He answers me from his holy mountain.
5I lie down and sleep.
I wake up again, because the Lord takes care of me.
6I won’t be afraid even though tens of thousands
attack me on every side.
7 Lord, rise up!
My God, save me!
Strike all my enemies in the face.
Break the teeth of sinful people.
8 Lord, you are the one who saves.
May your blessing be on your people.
