«A Psalm by David, when he fled from Absalom his son.»
Yahweh, how my adversaries have increased! Many are those who rise up against me.
2
Many there are who say of my soul, "There is no help for him in God." Selah.
3
But you, Yahweh, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.
4
I cry to Yahweh with my voice, and he answers me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5
I laid myself down and slept. I awakened; for Yahweh sustains me.
6
I will not be afraid of tens of thousands of people who have set themselves against me on every side.
7
Arise, Yahweh! Save me, my God! For you have struck all of my enemies on the cheek bone. You have broken the teeth of the wicked.
8
Salvation belongs to Yahweh. Your blessing be on your people. Selah.
