Confidence in Troubled Times

1 A psalm of David when he fled from his son Absalom.(A)
Lord, how my foes increase!
There are many who attack me.(B)
Many say about me,
“There is no help for him in God.”(C)Selah
But You, Lord, are a shield around me,(D)
my glory,(E) and the One who lifts up my head.(F)
I cry aloud to the Lord,
and He answers me from His holy mountain.(G)Selah
I lie down and sleep;
I wake again because the Lord sustains me.(H)
I am not afraid of the thousands of people
who have taken their stand against me on every side.(I)
Rise up, Lord!(J)
Save me, my God!
You strike all my enemies on the cheek;(K)
You break the teeth of the wicked.(L)
Salvation belongs to the Lord;(M)
may Your blessing be on Your people.(N)Selah
