1 A Psalm of David. When he fled from the face of his son, Absalom.
2 Lord, why have those who trouble me been multiplied?Many rise up against me.
3 Many say to my soul,'There is no salvation for him in his God.'Pause
4 But you, Lord, are my supporter,my glory, and the one who raises up my head.
5 I have cried out to the Lord with my voice,and he has heard me from his holy mountain.Pause
6 I have slept, and I have been stupefied.But I awakened because the Lord has taken me up.
7 I will not fear the thousands of people surrounding me.Rise up, Lord. Save me, my God.
8 For you have struck all those who oppose me without cause.You have broken the teeth of sinners.
9 Salvation is of the Lord,and your blessing is upon your people.Pause
