¶ O LORD, how my oppressors are increased!
Many are they that rise up against me.
2
Many there are that say to my soul, You have no salvation in your God.
3
But thou, O LORD, art my help and my glory, and the lifter up of my head.
4
¶ I have cried to the LORD with my voice, and he has answered me from his holy mountain.
5
I lay down and slept;
and I awoke;
for the LORD sustained me.
6
I will not be afraid of thousands of people that have surrounded me and set themselves against me.
7
Arise, O LORD my God, and save me;
for thou hast smitten all my enemies upon their cheeks;
thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8
For salvation belongs to the LORD;
and thy blessing is upon thy people.
