A Psalm of David, when he fled from the face of Absalom his son
1 O Lord! how are my oppressors multiplied! Many rise up against me,
2 Many say to my soul, |There is no help for him in God.| Selah.
3 And thou, O Jehovah! art a shield for me; My glory, and he that exalteth my head.
4 With my voice to the Lord have I cried, And he heard me from the mountain of his holiness. Selah.
5 I lay down and slept; I awaked, because the Lord sustains me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, Who on all sides have set their camps against me.
7 Arise, O Lord l Save me, O my God! For thou hast smitten all my enemies upon the cheekbone; The teeth of the ungodly thou hast broken.
8 To the Lord belongeth salvation; Upon thy people is thy blessing. Selah.
