Psalm 3

A psalm of David, when he fled from his son Absalom.

1 LORD, I have so many enemies! So many are standing against me.
2 So many are talking about me: "Even God won't help him." Selah
3 But you, LORD, are my shield! You are my glory! You are the one who restores me.
4 I cry out loud to the LORD, and he answers me from his holy mountain. Selah
5 I lie down, sleep, and wake up because the LORD helps me.
6 I won't be afraid of thousands of people surrounding me on all sides.
7 Stand up, LORD! Save me, my God! In fact, hit all my enemies on the jaw; shatter the teeth of the wicked!
8 Rescue comes from the LORD! May your blessing be on your people! Selah
