Morning Prayer of Trust in God.
A Psalm of David, when [a]he fled from his son Absalom.
3 But You, Lord, are (C)a shield around me,
My (D)glory, and the One who (E)lifts my head.
4 I was crying out to the Lord with my voice,
And He (F)answered me from (G)His holy [b]mountain. Selah
5 [c]I (H)lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
6 I will (I)not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have (J)set themselves against me all around.
7 (K)Arise, Lord; (L)save me, my God!
For You [d]have (M)struck all my enemies on the [e]cheek;
You [f]have (N)shattered the teeth of the wicked.
8 [g](O)Salvation belongs to the Lord;
May Your (P)blessing [h]be upon Your people! Selah
