1 Yahweh, how my adversaries have increased! Many are those who rise up against me.
2 Many there are who say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3 But you, Yahweh, are a shield around me, My glory, and the one who lifts up my head.
4 I cry to Yahweh with my voice, And he answers me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5 I laid myself down and slept. I awakened; for Yahweh sustains me.
6 I will not be afraid of tens of thousands of people Who have set themselves against me on every side.
7 Arise, Yahweh! Save me, my God! For you have struck all of my enemies on the cheek bone. You have broken the teeth of the wicked.
8 Salvation belongs to Yahweh. Your blessing be on your people. Selah. Psalm 4 For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm by David.
