1 LORD, I have so many persecutors! Many are rising up against me! 2 Many are saying about me, "God will never deliver him!"
3 But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head. 4 I cry aloud to the LORD, and he answers me from his holy mountain. Interlude
5 I lie down and sleep, I wake up, because the LORD sustains me. 6 I will not fear multitudes of people, who set themselves against me on every side.
7 Arise, LORD! Deliver me, my God! For you strike the jaw of all my enemies, and you break the teeth of the wicked.
