Psalm 3 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

(Written by David when he was running from his son Absalom.)

An Early Morning Prayer

I have a lot of enemies, Lord.
Many fight against me and say,
    “God won’t rescue you!”

But you are my shield,
    and you give me victory
    and great honor.
I pray to you, and you answer
    from your sacred hill.

I sleep and wake up refreshed
    because you, Lord,
    protect me.
Ten thousand enemies attack
from every side,
    but I am not afraid.

Come and save me, Lord God!
Break my enemies' jaws
    and shatter their teeth,
    because you protect
    and bless your people.
