Psalm 3

1 I have so many enemies, Lord, so many who turn against me!
2 They talk about me and say, "God will not help him."
3 But you, O Lord, are always my shield from danger; you give me victory and restore my courage.
4 I call to the Lord for help, and from his sacred hill he answers me.
5 I lie down and sleep, and all night long the Lord protects me.
6 I am not afraid of the thousands of enemies who surround me on every side.
7 Come, Lord! Save me, my God! You punish all my enemies and leave them powerless to harm me.
8 Victory comes from the Lord - may he bless his people.
