The Lord Helps His Troubled People

A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son.

1Lord, how they have increased who trouble me!
Many are they who rise up against me.
2Many are they who say of me,
There is no help for him in God.” Selah

3But You, O Lord, are a shield [a]for me,
My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
4I cried to the Lord with my voice,
And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah

5I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
6I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me all around.

7Arise, O Lord;
Save me, O my God!
For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone;
You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8Salvation belongs to the Lord.
Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah
