1 To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David. Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: you have delivered me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2 O you sons of men, how long will you turn my glory into shame? how long will you love vanity, and seek after falsehood? Selah.
3 But know that the LORD has 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 are many that say, Who will show us any good? LORD, lift up the light of your countenance upon us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their grain and their wine increased.
8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for you, LORD, only make me dwell in safety.
