Psalm 3Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Confidence in Troubled Times
A psalm of David when he fled from his son Absalom.
1 Lord, how my foes increase!
There are many who attack me.
2 Many say about me,
“There is no help for him in God.”Selah
3 But You, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, and the One who lifts up my head.
4 I cry aloud to the Lord,
and He answers me from His holy mountain.Selah
5 I lie down and sleep;
I wake again because the Lord sustains me.
6 I am not afraid of the thousands of people
who have taken their stand against me on every side.
7 Rise up, Lord!
Save me, my God!
You strike all my enemies on the cheek;
You break the teeth of the wicked.
8 Salvation belongs to the Lord;
may Your blessing be on Your people.Selah
