Psalm 3 NLT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 O LORD, I have so many enemies; so many are against me. 1 O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
2 So many are saying, "God will never rescue him!" Interlude 2 Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." "Selah"
3 But you, O LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts my head high. 3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 I cried out to the LORD, and he answered me from his holy mountain. Interlude 4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah"
5 I lay down and slept. I woke up in safety, for the LORD was watching over me. 5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side. 6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
7 Arise, O LORD! Rescue me, my God! Slap all my enemies in the face! Shatter 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 Victory comes from you, O LORD. May your blessings rest on your people. Interlude 8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. "Selah"
