Moreover Ahithophel said to Absalom, "Let me now choose twelve thousand men, and I will arise and pursue after David tonight.
But you, Yahweh, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.
In peace I will both lay myself down and sleep, for you, Yahweh alone, make me live in safety. For the Chief Musician, with the flutes. A Psalm by David.
for they have opened the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit against me. They have spoken to me with a lying tongue.
For they don't sleep, unless they do evil. Their sleep is taken away, unless they make someone 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.
