Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 3

A Psalm of David when he fled from the face of Absalom his son.

1 O Lord, how many are my foes?

how many up against me stand?

2 Many say to my soul, No help

in God for him at any hand.

3 But thou, Lord, art my shield, my glory,

and the up lifter of my head.

4 With voice to God I call’d, who from

his holy hill me answered.

5 I laid me down, I slept, I wak’d,

for Jehovah did me up bear.

6 People that set against me round,

ten thousand of them I’ll not fear.

7 Arise, o Lord, save me my God,

for all mine enemies thou hast stroke

upon the cheek-bone; and the teeth

of the ungodly thou hast broke.

8 This, and all such salvation,

belongeth unto Jehovah:

thy blessing is, and let it be

upon thine own people. Selah.
