|Morning Prayer of Trust in God|
|A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.|
| ||JEHOVAH, how are mine adversaries increased!|
Many are they that rise up against me.
| ||Many there are that say of 1 my soul,|
There is no help 2 for him in God. [Selah
| ||But thou, O Jehovah, art a shield about me;|
My glory, and the lifter up of my head.
| ||I cry unto Jehovah with my voice,|
And he answereth me out of his holy hill. [Selah
| ||I laid me down and slept;|
I awaked; for Jehovah sustaineth me.
| ||I will not be afraid of ten thousands of the people|
That have set themselves against me round about.
| ||Arise, O Jehovah; save me, O my God:|
For thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone;
Thou hast broken the teeth of the wicked.
| ||Salvation 3 belongeth unto Jehovah:|
Thy blessing be upon thy people. [Selah
