1A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
O LORD, how my adversaries have increased!
Many are rising up against me.
2Many are saying of my soul,
“There is no deliverance for him in God.” Selah.
3But You, O LORD, are a shield about me,
My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
4I was crying to the LORD with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.
5I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD sustains me.
6I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me round about.
7Arise, 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.
8Salvation belongs to the LORD;
Your blessing [be] upon Your people! Selah.
