A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son. O LORD, how my adversaries have increased! Many are rising up against me. 2
Many are saying of my soul, 'There is no deliverance for him in God.' Selah. 3
But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. 4
I was crying to the LORD with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah. 5
I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustains me. 6
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me round about. 7
Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God! For You have smitten all my enemies on the cheek; You have shattered the teeth of the wicked. 8
Salvation belongs to the LORD; Your blessing be upon Your people! Selah.
