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 LORD, [are] a shield for me; my glory, the One who lifts up my head.
4 I cried to the LORD with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. Selah.
5 I laid down and slept. I awoke, for the LORD kept me.
6 I am not afraid of ten thousands of people who have set against me all around.
7 Arise, O LORD; 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 the LORD. Your blessing [is] on Your people. Selah.
