Tehillim | Psalm Three | Part One
1A song of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
2O Lord, how many have my adversaries become! Great men rise up against me.
3Great men say concerning my soul, “He has no salvation in God to eternity.”
4But You, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory and He Who raises up my head.
5With my voice, I call to the Lord, and He answered me from His holy mount to eternity.
6I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord will support me.
7I will not fear ten thousands of people, who have set themselves against me all around.
8Arise, O Lord, save me, my God, for You have struck all my enemies on the cheek; You have broken the teeth of the wicked.
9It is incumbent upon the Lord to save, and it is incumbent upon Your people to bless You forever.
