Psalm 3 (abbreviated)

 

Psalm 3 (abbreviated)

O Lord, how many were my adversaries! Many assaulted me. • Many said about me, “His God cannot save him.”

But you, O Lord, are my helper, my glory, and you lift my confidence. • I called out loud to the Lord, and he heard me from his holy mountain.

I reposed and fell asleep; I woke up, and the Lord still welcomes me. • I will not fear their thousands of troops who have surrounded and beseiged me.

Arise, O Lord! Save me, O my God! For you struck down all who were wrongfully hostile to me, and you will break the teeth of the wicked. • Salvation belongs to the Lord; may your blessing be upon your people!

In your mercy overthrow my enemies, and destroy all my adversaries, for I am your servant.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Now and always and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
