Psalms Challenge, Psalm 3

Posted by Picasa

Photographer unknown!The young ones feel safe!

But you, O LORD, are a shield about me,
my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the LORD,
and he answered me from his holy hill.

I lay down and slept;
I woke again, for the LORD sustained me.
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
who have set themselves against me all around.

Arise, O LORD!
Save me, O my God! For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
you break the teeth of the wicked.

Salvation belongs to the LORD;
your blessing be on your people!

U, HEER, bent een schild om mij heen,
u bent mijn eer, u houdt mij staande.
Roep ik tot de HEER om hulp,
hij antwoordt mij vanaf zijn heilige berg.

Ik ga liggen, val in slaap
en word wakker – de HEER beschermt mij.
Ik vrees de tienduizenden niet
die mij aan alle kanten omringen.

Sta op, HEER, en red mij, God,
sla mijn vijanden in het gezicht,
breek de tanden van de wettelozen.
Bij u, HEER, is redding,
uw zegen rust op uw volk

How moving pictures these are. A wonderful proof that parents are nearly the same all, regardless of being either animal or human a kind.

Of great joy to see your participation ! Please have a wonderful start into the new week. Hope to see you soon again.
