1Answer me when I call, O Elohim of my righteousness! You gave relief to me when I was in distress; Show favour to me, and hear my prayer.
2Till when, O you sons of men, Would you turn my esteem to shame, Would you love emptiness, seek falsehood? Selah.
3But know that יהוה has separated a lovingly-committed one for Himself; יהוה hears when I call to Him.
4Tremble, and do not sin. Speak within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah.
5Slaughter slaughterings of righteousness, And trust in יהוה.
6Many are saying, “Who would show us good?” יהוה, lift up the light of Your face upon us.
7You have put more gladness in my heart, Than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
8I lie down in peace altogether, and sleep; For You alone, O יהוה, make me dwell in safety.
