2 3:1A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son. LORD, how are they multiplied that trouble me? many are they that rise up against me.
3 3:2Many there are who say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
4 3:3But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of my head.
5 3:4I cried to the LORD with my voice, and he heard me from his holy hill. Selah.
6 3:5I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
7 3:6I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me on all sides.
8 3:7Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all my enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
9 3:8Salvation belongeth to the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
