A Morning Prayer Of Trust In God

1-4 God! Look! Enemies past counting! Enemies sprouting like mushrooms,Mobs of them all around me, roaring their mockery:“Hah! No help for him from God!” But you, God, shield me on all sides;You ground my feet, you lift my head high;With all my might I shout up to God,His answers thunder from the holy mountain.

5-7 I stretch myself out. I sleep.Then I’m up again—rested, tall and steady,Fearless before the enemy mobs. Coming at me from all sides. Up, God! My God, help me! Slap their faces,First this cheek, then the other,Your fist hard in their teeth!

Real help comes from God.Your blessing clothes your people!

– Psalm 3

The Message Version (MSG)


1-4 神啊,你看!敵人已經數不清了!他們像蕈類滋生,成群結黨在我四周,大聲嘲笑:「哈!他沒有神幫忙!」但是神啊,袮卻在四面八方守護我,讓我腳踏實地,讓我挺胸昂首;我用盡所有力氣向神呼喊,祂的回答從聖山隆隆發出。
