1
{To the chief Musician.
On stringed instruments.
A Psalm of David.}
When I call, answer me, O God of my righteousness: in pressure thou hast enlarged me;
be gracious unto me, and hear my prayer.
2
Ye sons of men, till when is my glory [to be put] to shame?
[How long] will ye love vanity, will ye seek after a lie?
Selah.
3
But know that Jehovah hath set apart the pious [man] for himself: Jehovah will hear when I call unto him.
4
Be moved with anger, and sin not;
meditate in your own hearts upon your bed, and be still.
Selah.
5
Offer sacrifices of righteousness, and confide in Jehovah.
6
Many say, Who shall cause us to see good?
Lift up upon us the light of thy countenance, O Jehovah.
7
Thou hast put joy in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their new wine was in abundance.
8
In peace will I both lay me down and sleep;
for thou, Jehovah, alone makest me to dwell in safety.
