To the Overseer with Stringed Instruments. — A Psalm of David.
1In my calling answer Thou me, O God of my righteousness. In adversity Thou gavest enlargement to me; Favour me, and hear my prayer.
2Sons of men! till when [is] my glory for shame? Ye love a vain thing, ye seek a lie. Selah.
3And know ye that Jehovah Hath separated a saintly one to Himself. Jehovah heareth in my calling to Him.
4‘Tremble ye, and do not sin;’ Say ye [thus] in your heart on your bed, And be ye silent. Selah.
5Sacrifice ye sacrifices of righteousness, And trust ye unto Jehovah.
6Many are saying, ‘Who doth show us good?’ Lift on us the light of Thy face, O Jehovah,
7Thou hast given joy in my heart, From the time their corn and their wine Have been multiplied.
8In peace together I lie down and sleep, For Thou, O Jehovah, alone, In confidence dost cause me to dwell!
