Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I have so many enemies, Lord, so many who turn against me! 1 O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
2 They talk about me and say, "God will not help him." 2 Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." "Selah"
3 But you, O Lord, are always my shield from danger; you give me victory and restore my courage. 3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 I call to the Lord for help, and from his sacred hill he answers me. 4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah"
5 I lie down and sleep, and all night long the Lord protects me. 5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I am not afraid of the thousands of enemies who surround me on every side. 6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
7 Come, Lord! Save me, my God! You punish all my enemies and leave them powerless to harm me. 7 Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.
8 Victory comes from the Lord - may he bless his people. 8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. "Selah"
