1Hear 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.2O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after the lie? Selah.3But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself; the Lord will hear when I call unto him.4Stand in awe, and sin not; meditate in your heart upon your bed, and desist. Selah.5Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.
6There are many that say, Who will show us any good? Lord, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.7Thou hast put gladness in my heart in the time that their grain and their wine multiplied.8I will both lay me down in peace and sleep: for thou only, O Lord, dost make me to be confident.
