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!

Psalm 3:1-8
