O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him.1" "Selah"a3
But you are a shield2 around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and liftb up my head.34
To the LORD I cry aloud,4 and he answers me from his holy hill.5 "Selah"
I lie down and sleep;6 I wake again,7 because the LORD sustains me.
I will not fear8 the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.97
Arise,10 O LORD! Deliver me,11 O my God! Strike12 all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth13 of the wicked.
