To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David.
1
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress;
have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2
O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?
how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing?
Selah.
3
But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4
Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.
Selah.
5
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
6
There be many that say, Who will shew us any good?
LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
7
Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
8
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
