How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me,
God will not deliver him.
But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the one who lifts my head high.
I call out to the Lord,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.
I lie down and sleep;
I awake again, because tbe Lord sustains me.
I will not fear though tens of thousands
assail me on every side.
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
From the Lord comes deliverance .
May your blessing be on your people.
