English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 O LORD, how many are my foes! Many are rising against me; 1 O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
2 many are saying of my soul, there is no salvation for him in God. Selah 2 Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." "Selah"
3 But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. 3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 I cried aloud to the LORD, and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah 4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah"
5 I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the LORD sustained me. 5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I will not be afraid of many thousands of people who have set themselves against me all around. 6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
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. 7 Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.
8 Salvation belongs to the LORD; your blessing be on your people! Selah 8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. "Selah"
