O Lord , I have so many enemies;
so many are against me.
2 So many are saying,
“God will never rescue him!”
But you, O Lord , are a shield around me;
you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.
4 I cried out to the Lord ,
and he answered me from his holy mountain.
I lay down and slept,
yet I woke up in safety,
for the Lord was watching over me.
6 I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies
who surround me on every side.
Arise, O Lord !
Rescue me, my God!
Slap all my enemies in the face!
Shatter the teeth of the wicked!
Victory comes from you, O Lord .
May you bless your people.
