3 Lord, you are like a shield that keeps me safe. You honor me. You help me win the battle. 3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 I call out to the Lord. 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 up again, because the LORD takes care of me. 5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I won't be afraid of the tens of thousands who are lined up against me on every side. 6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against 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. 7 Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.
8 Lord, you are the one who saves. May your blessing be on your people. "Selah" 8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. "Selah"
