Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Psalm of David, in his fleeing from the face of Absalom his son. Jehovah, how have my distresses multiplied! Many are rising up against me. 1 O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of my soul, `There is no salvation for him in God.' Selah. 2 Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." "Selah"
3 And Thou, O Jehovah, [art] a shield for me, My honour, and lifter up of my head. 3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 My voice [is] unto Jehovah: I call: And He answereth me from his holy hill, Selah. 4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah"
5 I -- I have lain down, and I sleep, I have waked, for Jehovah sustaineth me. 5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I am not afraid of myriads of people, That round about they have set against me. 6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
7 Rise, O Jehovah! save me, my God. Because Thou hast smitten All mine enemies [on] the cheek. The teeth of the wicked Thou hast broken. 7 Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.
8 Of Jehovah [is] this salvation; On Thy people [is] Thy blessing! Selah. 8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. "Selah"
