A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son. O Lord, how my adversaries have increased! Many are rising up against me.
Then Absalom and all the people, the men of Israel, entered Jerusalem, and Ahithophel with him.
But I counsel that all Israel be surely gathered to you, from Dan even to Beersheba, as the sand that is by the sea in abundance, and that you personally go into battle.
Wondrously show Your lovingkindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand From those who rise up against them.
“ Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.
And all the people said, “ His blood shall be on us and on our children!”
Now it came about after this that Absalom provided for himself a chariot and horses and fifty men as runners before him.
