Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved me in my distress;
1 Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.
How long, O you sons of men,
Will you turn my glory to shame?
How long will you love worthlessness
And seek falsehood? Selah 3 But know that a the LORD has 2 set apart for Himself him who is godly;
The LORD will hear when I call to Him.
b Be 3 angry, and do not sin.
c Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah 5 Offer d the sacrifices of righteousness,
And e put your trust in the LORD.
There are many who say,
"Who will show us any good?"
f LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us. 7 You have put g gladness in my heart,
More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
h I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
i For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
