1 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. 2 Many are saying of my soul, There is no deliverance for him in God. Selah.
3 But You, O Jehovah, are a shield for me; my glory, the One who lifts up my head. 4 I cried to Jehovah with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. Selah.
5 I laid down and slept. I awoke, for Jehovah kept me. 6 I am not afraid of ten thousands of people who have set against me all around.
7 Arise, O Jehovah; save me, O my God; for You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone. You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8 Salvation belongs to Jehovah. Your blessing is on Your people. Selah.
