New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son. Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. 1 O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
2 Many are they who say of me, "There is no help for him in God." Selah 2 Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." "Selah"
3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. 3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah 4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah"
5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me. 5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around. 6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
7 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. 7 Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.
8 Salvation belongs to the Lord. Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah 8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. "Selah"
