Lord, how are they are they increased that trouble me!
many are they that rise against me,
But thou, O Lord, art my defender;
thou art my worship,
and the lifter up of my head.
I did call upon the Lord with my voice;
and he heard me out of his holy hill.
I laid me down and slept,
and rose up again;
for the Lord sustained me.
Salvation belongeth unto the Lord;
and thy blessing is upon thy people.
Hallelujah,
Amen.
