|[A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.]||Morning Prayer. Psalm 3|
|O LORD, how many are my foes! |
Many are rising against me;
|many are saying of me, |
there is no help for him in God. [Selah]
|But thou, O LORD, art a shield about me, |
my glory, and the lifter of my head.
|I cry aloud to the LORD, |
and he answers me from his holy hill. [Selah]
|I lie down and sleep; I wake again, |
for the LORD sustains me.
|I am not afraid of ten thousands of people |
who have set themselves against me round about.
|Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! |
For thou dost smite all my enemies on the cheek,
thou dost break the teeth of the wicked.
|Deliverance belongs to the Lord;|
thy blessing be upon thy people!
