1 LORD, how my adversaries have increased. Many are those who rise up against me. 2 Many there are who say of my soul, "There is no help for him in God." Selah.
3 But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head. 4 I cry to the LORD with my voice, and he answers me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5 I laid myself down and slept. I awakened; for the LORD sustains me. 6 I will not be afraid of tens of thousands of people who have set themselves against me on every side.
7 Arise, LORD. Save me, my God. For you have struck all of my enemies on the cheek bone. You have broken the teeth of the wicked.
