1O Yahweh, how my adversaries are many! Many are those who rise up against me.
2Many there are who say of my soul, “There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah.
3But you, Yahweh, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.
4I cry out to Yahweh with my voice, and he answers me from his holy mountain. Selah.
5I laid down and slept. I awoke, because Yahweh sustains me.
6I will not be afraid of the multitudes of people who have set themselves against me on every side.
7Arise, O Yahweh! Save me, O my God! Oh that you might strike all of my enemies on the cheek. Oh that you might shatter the teeth of the wicked.
8The victory belongs to Yahweh. May your blessing be on your people. Selah.
