Psalm 3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

A song of David written during the time he was running from his son Absalom.

Lord, I have so many enemies.
    So many people have turned against me.
They say to themselves, “God will not rescue him!” Selah

But you, Lord, protect me.
    You bring me honor;
    you give me hope.

I will pray to the Lord,
    and he will answer me from his holy mountain. Selah

I can lie down to rest and know that I will wake up,
    because the Lord covers and protects me.
So I will not be afraid of my enemies,
    even if thousands of them surround me.

Lord, get up![a]
    My God, come rescue me!
If you hit my enemies on the cheek,
    you will break all their teeth.

Lord, the victory[b] is yours!
    You are so good to your people. Selah
