4 I cry aloud to the LORD, and he answers me from his holy hill. [Selah] 4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah"
5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, for the LORD sustains me. 5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I am not afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me round about. 6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
7 Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! For thou dost smite all my enemies on the cheek, thou dost 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 Deliverance belongs to the LORD; thy blessing be upon thy people! [Selah] 8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. "Selah"
