Save Me, O My God
A Psalm of David, awhen he fled from Absalom his son.1 O Lord, bhow many are my foes!
Many are crising against me;
2many are saying of my soul,
dthere is no salvation for him in God. Selah ▼

3 But you, O Lord, are fa shield gabout me,
my glory, and hthe lifter of my head.
4I icried aloud to the Lord,
and he janswered me from his kholy hill. Selah
5 I llay down and slept;
I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
6I mwill not be afraid of many thousands of people
who have nset themselves against me all around.
7 oArise, O Lord!
Save me, O my God!
For you pstrike all my enemies on the cheek;
you qbreak the teeth of the wicked.
8 rSalvation belongs to the Lord;
your blessing be on your people! Selah
