Psalm 3Amplified Bible (AMP)
Morning Prayer of Trust in God.
A Psalm of David. When he fled from Absalom his son.
3 O Lord, how my enemies have increased!
Many are rising up against me.
Many are saying of me,
“There is no help [no salvation] for him in God.” Selah.
But You, O Lord, are a shield for me,
My glory [and my honor], and the One who lifts my head.
With my voice I was crying to the Lord,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.
I lay down and slept [safely];
I awakened, for the Lord sustains me.
I will not be intimidated or afraid of the ten thousands
Who have set themselves against me all around.
Arise, O Lord; 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 the Lord;
May Your blessing be upon Your people. Selah.
Psalm 3New International Version (NIV)
A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom.
1 Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me,
“God will not deliver him.”
3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4 I call out to the Lord,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.
5 I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
6 I will not fear though tens of thousands
assail me on every side.
7 Arise, Lord!
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
8 From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.
