'But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.'


Psalm 3

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


1 Lord, how are they increased that trouble me!
many are they that rise up against me.

2 Many there be which say of my soul,
There is no help for him in God. Selah.

3 But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me;
my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

4 I cried unto the Lord with my voice,
and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.

5 I laid me down and slept;
I awaked; for the Lord sustained me.

6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people,
that have set themselves against me round about.

7 Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God:
for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone;
thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

8 Salvation belongeth unto the Lord:
thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
