The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 God! Look! Enemies past counting! Enemies sprouting like mushrooms, 1 O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
2 Mobs of them all around me, roaring their mockery: "Hah! No help for him from God!" 2 Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." "Selah"
3 But you, God, shield me on all sides; You ground my feet, you lift my head high; 3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 With all my might I shout up to God, His answers thunder from the holy mountain. 4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah"
5 I stretch myself out. I sleep. Then I'm up again - rested, tall and steady, 5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 Fearless before the enemy mobs Coming at me from all sides. 6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
7 Up, God! My God, help me! Slap their faces, First this cheek, then the other, Your fist hard in their teeth! 7 Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.
8 Real help comes from God. Your blessing clothes your people! 8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. "Selah"
