Psalm 3

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

Lord, how they are increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.

Many are saying of me, There is no help for him in God. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

I lay down and slept; I wakened again, for the Lord sustains me.

I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me round about.

Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheek; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.

Salvation belongs to the Lord; May Your blessing be upon Your people. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
