Moreover Ahithophel said to Absalom, Let me now choose out twelve thousand men, and I will arise and pursue after David this night.
But thou, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory and he who lifts up of my head.
for they have opened against me the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit. They have spoken to me with a lying tongue.
For they do not sleep unless they do evil. And their sleep is taken away unless they cause to fall.
Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity. Desolation and destruction are in their paths.
