A Davidic Psalm, when he fled from his son Absalom.
God Delivers His Servants
3 Lord, I have so many persecutors! Many are rising up against me! 2 Many are saying about me, “God will never deliver him!” Interlude
3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head. 4 I cry aloud[a] to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain. Interlude 5 I lie down and sleep, I wake up, because the Lord sustains me. 6 I will not fear multitudes of[b] people, who set themselves against me on every side.
7 Arise, Lord! Deliver me, my God! For you strike the jaw of all my enemies, and you break the teeth of the wicked. 8 Deliverance comes from the Lord! May your blessing be on your people. Interlude
