How many are my foes, Lord!
How many rise against me!
How many say of me,
“God will not save that one.”
But you, Lord, are a shield around me;
my glory, you keep my head high.
Whenever I cried out to the Lord,
I was answered from the Holy Mountain.
Whenever I lay down and slept,
the Lord preserved me to rise again.
I do not fear, then, thousands of people
arrayed against me on every side.
Arise, Lord! Save me, my God!
You will shatter the jaws of all my foes;
you will break the teeth of the wicked.
Safety comes from the Lord!
Your blessing for your people!
