1 A psalm of David, regarding the time David fled from his son Absalom. O LORD, I have so many enemies; so many are against me.

2 So many are saying, "God will never rescue him!" Interlude*1

3 But you, O LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts my head high.

4 I cried out to the LORD, and he answered me from his holy mountain. Interlude

5 I lay down and slept. I woke up in safety, for the LORD was watching over me.

6 I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side.

7 Arise, O LORD! Rescue me, my God! Slap all my enemies in the face! Shatter the teeth of the wicked!

8 Victory comes from you, O LORD. May your blessings rest on your people. Interlude
