[1] Yahweh, how my adversaries have increased! Many are those who rise up against me.
[2] Many there are who say of my soul, “There is no help for him in God.”§ Selah.
[3] But you, Yahweh, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.
[4] I cry to Yahweh with my voice, and he answers me out of his holy hill. Selah.
[5] I laid myself down and slept. I awakened, for Yahweh sustains me.
[6] I will not be afraid of tens of thousands of people who have set themselves against me on every side.
[7] Arise, Yahweh! Save me, my God! For you have struck all of my enemies on the cheek bone. You have broken the teeth of the wicked.
[8] Salvation belongs to Yahweh. May your blessing be on your people. Selah.

[1] «A Psalm H4210 of David H1732, when he fled H1272 (8800) from H6440 Absalom H53 his son H1121.» LORD H3068, how are they increased H7231 (8804) that trouble H6862 me! many H7227 [are] they that rise up H6965 (8801) against me.
[2] Many H7227 [there be] which say H559 (8802) of my soul H5315, [There is] no help H3444 for him in God H430. Selah H5542.

[4] I cried H7121 (8799) unto the LORD H3068 with my voice H6963, and he heard H6030 (8799) me out of his holy H6944 hill H2022. Selah H5542.

[7] Arise H6965 (8798), O LORD H3068; save H3467 (8685) me, O my God H430: for thou hast smitten H5221 (8689) all mine enemies H341 (8802) [upon] the cheek bone H3895; thou hast broken H7665 (8765) the teeth H8127 of the ungodly H7563.
[8] Salvation H3444 [belongeth] unto the LORD H3068: thy blessing H1293 [is] upon thy people H5971. Selah H5542.
