1 Answer me when I call to you, ¶ my righteous God. ¶ Give me relief from my distress; ¶ have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame? ¶ How long will you love delusions and seek false gods [^1] ? [^2]
3 Know that the LORD has set apart his faithful servant for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him.
4 Tremble and [^3] do not sin; ¶ when you are on your beds, ¶ search your hearts and be silent.
5 Offer the sacrifices of the righteous and trust in the LORD.
6 Many, LORD, are asking, "Who will bring us prosperity?" ¶ Let the light of your face shine on us.
7 Fill my heart with joy when their grain and new wine abound.
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, ¶ for you alone, LORD, ¶ make me dwell in safety.
