The prophet’s danger and delivery from his son Absalom: mystically, the passion and resurrection of Christ.
The psalm of David when he fled from the face of his son Absalom. (2 Kings [2 Samuel] 15.)
Why, O Lord, are they multiplied that afflict me? many are they who rise up against me.
Many say to my soul: There is no salvation for him in his God.
But thou, O Lord, art my protector, my glory, and the lifter up of my head.
I have cried to the Lord with my voice: and he hath heard me from his holy hill.
I have slept and have taken my rest: and I have risen up, because the Lord hath protected me.
I will not fear thousands of the people surrounding me: arise, O Lord; save me, O my God.
For thou hast struck all them, who are my adversaries without cause: thou hast broken the teeth of sinners.
Salvation is of the Lord: and thy blessing is upon thy people.
