Old Testament Psalms Chapter 3

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

David cries unto the Lord and is heard-Salvation is of the Lord.

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

 1 LORD, how are they increased that atrouble 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 ashield 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.

 aSalvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
