Psalm 3

A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
3:1 Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
3:2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3:3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
3:4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
3:5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
3:6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
3:7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. (3:7) "My God ... thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly."
God has smitten his "enemies upon the cheek bone" and has "broken the teeth of the ungodly."
3:8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
