Psalm 3

Yahweh, Save Me

A Psalm of David. When he fled from Absalom his son.

O Yahweh, how my adversaries have become many!
Many are rising up against me.
Many are saying of my soul,
“There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah.

But You, O Yahweh, are a shield about me,
My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
I was calling to Yahweh with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.
I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for Yahweh sustains me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who all around have set themselves against me.

Arise, O Yahweh; save me, O my God!
For You have struck all my enemies on the cheek;
You have shattered the teeth of the wicked.
Salvation belongs to Yahweh;
Your blessing be upon Your people! Selah.
