And Ahithophel said to Absalom, Please let me choose out twelve thousand men, and I will arise and pursue after David tonight.
But You, O Jehovah, are a shield for me; my glory, the One who lifts up my head.
I will lie down, both in peace and in sleep. For You alone, Jehovah, make me dwell in safety.
for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me; they spoke against me with a lying tongue.
For they do not sleep, except when they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away unless they cause some to fall.
Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and ruin are in their paths.
