1 Hear me when
I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when
I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2 O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?
how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for
himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon
your bed, and be still. Selah.
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust
in the LORD.
6 There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift
thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time
that their corn and their wine increased.
8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD,
only makest me dwell in safety.
