1 To the Chief Musician, for stringed instruments. A Psalm of David. Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness; You gave room to me in trouble; have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.
2 O sons of men, [how long] will you turn My glory into shame? Will you love vanity and seek after a lie? Selah.
3 But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for Himself. The LORD hears when I call to Him.
4 Tremble, and sin not; speak within your own heart on your bed and be still. Selah.
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and trust in the LORD.
6 There [are] many who say, Who will show us [any] good? LORD, lift up the light of Your face on us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart, more than in the time [that] their grain and their wine increased.
8 I will lie down, both in peace and in sleep. For You alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.
