Psalms 3


The LORD is Our Protector

A psalm to David when he ran away from the face of Absalom his son.

1O  lord, why were [4multiplied 1the ones 2afflicting 3me]? Many rise up against me. 2Many say concerning my soul, There is no deliverance to him by his God. PAUSE. 3But you, O  lord, [2my shielder 1are], my glory, and the one raising up my head. 4[2my voice 3to 4the  lord 1I cried out], and he heeded me from out of [2mountain 1his holy]. 5And I went to bed and slept. I woke up, for the  lord shall assist me. 6I shall not fear from ten thousands of people of the ones round about joining in attacking me. 7Rise up, O  lord! Deliver me, O my God! For you struck all the ones hating me for no cause; [2the teeth 3of sinners 1you broke]. 8[2is of the 3  lord 1Deliverance], and [2is upon 3your people 1your blessing].
