A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son.
The Lord Helps His Troubled People
Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many
they who rise up against me.
they who say of me, “
no help for him in God.”
But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill.
I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.
Arise, 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.
Salvation belongs to the Lord. Your blessing is upon Your people.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Amen
