Psalms: 3

Morning Prayer.

[A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.]

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!
