1 PSALMUS. David, cum fugit a filio suo Absalom.
2 Domine, quid multiplicati sunt, qui tribulant me? Multi insurgunt adversum me,
3 multi dicunt animae meae: "Non est salus ipsi in Deo".
4 Tu autem, Domine, protector meus es, gloria mea et exaltans caput meum.
5 Voce mea ad Dominum clamavi, et exaudivit me de monte sancto suo.
6 Ego obdormivi et soporatus sum, exsurrexi, quia Dominus suscepit me.
7 Non timebo milia populi circumdantis me. Exsurge, Domine salvum me fac, Deus meus;
8 quoniam tu percussisti in maxillam omnes adversantes mihi, dentes peccatorum contrivisti.
9 Domini est salus, et super populum tuum benedictio tua.
King James Version
A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
1 LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
