To the chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
1When I call, answer me, O God#GodHebrew: Elohim of my righteousness: in pressure thou hast enlarged me; be gracious unto me, and hear my prayer. 2Ye sons of men, till when is my glory to be put to shame? How long will ye love vanity, will ye seek after a lie? Selah. 3But know that Jehovah hath set apart the pious man for himself: Jehovah will hear when I call unto him. 4Be moved with anger, and sin not; meditate in your own hearts upon your bed, and be still. Selah. 5Offer sacrifices of righteousness, and confide in Jehovah.
6Many say, Who shall cause us to see good? Lift up upon us the light of thy countenance, O Jehovah. 7Thou hast put joy in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their new wine was in abundance. 8In peace will I both lay me down and sleep; for thou, Jehovah, alone makest me to dwell in safety.
