A Psalm of David, when he fled from his son Absalom. O Lord, how my foes have increased! Many are the ones who rise up against me.
And Absalom and all the people, the men of Israel, came to Jerusalem. And Ahithophel went with him.
Therefore I advise that all Israel be generally gathered to you, from Dan even to Beer-sheba, like the sand that is by the sea for multitude. And you yourself shall go into battle.
Set out Your wonderful loving-kindness, O Savior of those seeking refuge in You, by Your right hand, from those who rise up against me.
And brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child. And the children shall rise up against their parents and cause them to be put to death.
And it happened after this, Absalom prepared himself chariots and horses and fifty men to run before him.
