LORD, how they have increased who trouble me!
Many are they who rise up against me.
Many are they who say of me,
"There is no help for him in God." Selah
But You, O LORD, are a a shield for me,
My glory and b the One who lifts up my head.
I cried to the LORD with my voice,
And c He heard me from His d holy hill. Selah
e I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.
f I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me all around.
Arise, O LORD;
Save me, O my God!
g For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone;
You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
h Salvation belongs to the LORD.
Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah
New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise Him.
Have mercy on me, O LORD! Consider my trouble from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death.
And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
But know that the LORD has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The LORD will hear when I call to Him.
I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.
"Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion."
LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill?
Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your holy hill And to Your tabernacle.
I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid; I will rid the land of evil beasts, and the sword will not go through your land.
I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.
They gape at me with their mouth, They strike me reproachfully on the cheek, They gather together against me.
The LORD is their strength, And He is the saving refuge of His anointed.
Also draw out the spear, And stop those who pursue me. Say to my soul, "I am your salvation.
I, even I, am the LORD, And besides Me there is no savior.
