Yahweh, Save Me

A Psalm of David. When [a]he fled from Absalom his son.

O Yahweh, how (A)my adversaries have become many!
Many are rising up against me.
Many are saying [b]of my soul,
“There is no (B)salvation for him in God.” [c]Selah.

But You, O Yahweh, are (C)a shield about me,
My (D)glory, and the One who (E)lifts my head.
I was calling to Yahweh with my voice,
And He (F)answered me from (G)His holy [d]mountain. Selah.
[e]I (H)lay down and slept;
I awoke, for Yahweh sustains me.
I will (I)not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who all around (J)have set themselves against me.

(K)Arise, O Yahweh; (L)save me, O my God!
For You have (M)struck all my enemies on the [f]cheek;
You [g]have (N)shattered the teeth of the wicked.
[h](O)Salvation belongs to Yahweh;
Your (P)blessing [i]be upon Your people! Selah.
