(ESV)
A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
 
1
O LORD, how many are my foes!
 

 

Many are rising against me;
 
2
many are saying of my soul,
 

 

“There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah
 
 
 
3
But you, O LORD, are a shield about me,
 

 

my glory, and the lifter of my head.
 
4
I cried aloud to the LORD,
 

 

and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah
 
 
 
5
I lay down and slept;
 

 

I woke again, for the LORD sustained me.
 
6
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
 

 

who have set themselves against me all around.
 
 
 
7
Arise, O LORD!
 

 

Save me, O my God!
 
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
 

 

you break the teeth of the wicked.
 
 
 
8
Salvation belongs to the LORD;
 

 

your blessing be on your people! Selah
