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