The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 3  

3:1 The psalm of David when he fled from the face of his son Absalom.

3:1 Psalmus David cum fugeret a facie Absalom filii sui

3:2 Why, O Lord, are they multiplied that afflict me? many are they who rise up against me.

3:2 Domine quid multiplicati sunt qui tribulant me multi insurgunt adversum me

3:3 Many say to my soul: There is no salvation for him in his God.

3:3 Multi dicunt animae meae non est salus ipsi in Deo eius

3:4 But thou, O Lord art my protector, my glory, and the lifter up of my head.

3:4 Tu autem Domine susceptor meus es gloria mea et exaltans caput meum

3:5 I have cried to the Lord with my voice: and he hath heard me from his holy hill.

3:5 Voce mea ad Dominum clamavi et exaudivit me de monte sancto suo

3:6 I have slept and taken my rest: and I have risen up, because the Lord hath protected me.

3:6 Ego dormivi et soporatus sum exsurrexi quia Dominus suscipiet me

3:7 I will not fear thousands of the people, surrounding me: arise, O Lord; save me, O my God.

3:7 Non timebo milia populi circumdantis me exsurge Domine salvum me fac Deus meus

3:8 For thou hast struck all them who are my adversaries without cause: thou hast broken the teeth of sinners.

3:8 Quoniam tu percussisti omnes adversantes mihi sine causa dentes peccatorum contrivisti

3:9 Salvation is of the Lord: and thy blessing is upon thy people.

3:9 Domini est salus et super populum tuum benedictio tua
