1 To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
2 Answer me when I call, O God of my right! Thou hast given me room when I was in distress. Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.
3 O men, how long shall my honor suffer shame? How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies? [Selah]
4 But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him.
5 Be angry, but sin not; commune with your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. [Selah]
6 Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the LORD.
7 There are many who say, "O that we might see some good! Lift up the light of thy countenance upon us, O LORD!"
8 Thou hast put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. [ (Psalms 4:9) In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for thou alone, O LORD, makest me dwell in safety. ]
