Psalms 3-4 ~ A Shield Around Me


A personal confession adapted from the Psalms.

A Shield Around Me ~ from Psalms 3-4

Yahweh is a shield all around me.
He is the One in whom I glory,
The One who lifts up my head.
I cry out to Him ~ and He hears me.

I lie down and sleep;
I awake, for He sustains me.
I will not fear, even if 10,000 foes come against me
And surround me on every side.
For Yahweh will rise up to deliver me.

My help, my rescue, my victory, my prosperity,
My salvation comes from Yahweh.
His blessing is upon His people.

There are many who say, “Who will show us any good?”
Yahweh makes the light of His face shine upon us.

He fills my heart with greater joy,
Than when the harvest of grain and new wine abound.
I lie down in peace and sleep in His shalom ~
In the wholeness that comes from Him alone.
For only Yahweh makes me dwell in safety.
