Psalm 3

Deliver Me, O LORD!
(2 Samuel 15:13–29)

A Psalm of David, when he fled from his son Absalom.

1O LORD, how my foes have increased!

How many rise up against me!

2 Many say of me,

“God will not deliver him.”

Selah a 

3 But You, O LORD, are a shield around me,

my glory, and the One who lifts my head.

4 To the LORD I cry aloud,

and He answers me from His holy mountain.


5 I lie down and sleep;

I wake again, for the LORD sustains me.

6 I will not fear the myriads

set against me on every side.

7 Arise, O LORD!

Save me, O my God!

Strike all my enemies on the jaw;

break the teeth of the wicked.

8 Salvation belongs to the LORD;

may Your blessing be on Your people.




2 a Selah or Interlude is probably a musical or literary term; here and throughout the Psalms.
