Psalm 3 - Save Me, O My God

Save Me, O My God

A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.


1 O Lord, how many are my foes!

Many are rising against me;

2 many are saying of my soul,

"There is no salvation for him in God." Selah


3 But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,

my glory, and the lifter of my head.

4 I cried aloud to the Lord,

and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah


5 I lay down and slept;

I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.

6 I will not be afraid of many thousands of people

who have set themselves against me all around.


7 Arise, O Lord!

Save me, O my God!

For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;

you break the teeth of the wicked.

8 Salvation belongs to the Lord;

your blessing be on your people! Selah
