Save Me, O My God
A Psalm of David, nwhen he fled from Absalom his son.
3 O Lord, ohow many are my foes!
Many are prising against me;
2 many are saying of my soul,
3 But you, O Lord, are ra shield sabout me,
my glory, and tthe lifter of my head.
4 I ucried aloud to the Lord,
5 I xlay down and slept;
I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
6 I ywill not be afraid of many thousands of people
who have zset themselves against me all around.
7 aArise, O Lord!
Save me, O my God!
For you bstrike all my enemies on the cheek;
you cbreak the teeth of the wicked.
8 dSalvation belongs to the Lord;
your blessing be on your people! Selah
4 But when dthe goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, enot because of works done by us in righteousness, but faccording to his own mercy, by gthe washing of regeneration and hrenewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he ipoured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that jbeing justified by his grace we might become kheirs laccording to the hope of eternal life.
