1 A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son. Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.

1 . .

2 Many are they who say of me, "There is no help for him in God." Selah

2 : [ ]. .

3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.

3 . .

4 I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah

4 . .

5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.

5 . .

6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.

6 .

7 Arise, O Lord; Save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.

8 Salvation belongs to the Lord. Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah
