3 Jehovah, how are mine adversaries increased! Many are they that rise up against me.

2 Many there are that say of my soul, there is no help for him in God. (Selah)

3 But thou, O Jehovah, art a shield about me; My glory and the lifter up of my head.

4 I cry unto Jehovah with my voice, and he answereth me out of his holy hill. (Selah)

5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for Jehovah sustaineth me.


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

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

8 Salvation belongeth unto Jehovah: Thy blessing be upon thy people. (Selah)
