1
{A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.}
Jehovah, how many are they that trouble me, many they that rise up against me!
2
Many say of my soul, There is no salvation for him in God.
Selah.
3
But thou, Jehovah, art a shield about me;
my glory, and the lifter up of my head.
4
With my voice will I call to Jehovah, and he will answer me from the hill of his holiness.
Selah.
5
I laid me down and slept;
I awaked, for Jehovah sustaineth me.
6
I will not fear for myriads of the people that have set themselves against me round about.
7
Arise, Jehovah;
save me, my God!
For thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheekbone, thou hast broken the teeth of the wicked.
8
Salvation is of Jehovah;
thy blessing is upon thy people.
Selah.
