A Psalm of David, when [a]he fled from Absalom his son.
3 O Lord, how my adversaries have increased! Many are rising up against me. 2 Many are saying [b]of my soul, “There is no [c]deliverance for him in God.” [d]Selah.
3 But You, O Lord, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. 4 I was crying to the Lord with my voice, And He answered me from His holy [e]mountain. Selah. 5 [f]I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustains me. 6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me round about.
7 Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God! For You [g]have smitten all my enemies on the [h]cheek; You [i]have shattered the teeth of the wicked. 8 [j]Salvation belongs to the Lord; Your blessing [k]be upon Your people! Selah.
Evening Prayer of Trust in God.
[l]For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
4 Answer me when I call, O God [m]of my righteousness! You have [n]relieved me in my distress; Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.
2 O sons of men, how long will my [o]honor become a reproach? How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? [p]Selah. 3 But know that the Lord has [q]set apart the godly man for Himself; The Lordhears when I call to Him.
4 [r]Tremble, [s]and do not sin; [t]Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. 5 Offer [u]the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the Lord.
6 Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?” Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord! 7 You have put gladness in my heart, More than when their grain and new wine abound. 8 In peace I will [v]both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.
