Confident Plea for Deliverance from Enemies

To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1Answer me when I call, O God of my right!

You gave me room when I was in distress.

Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.

2How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame?

How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies?   Selah

3But know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for himself;

the Lord hears when I call to him.

4When you are disturbed, do not sin;

ponder it on your beds, and be silent.   Selah

5Offer right sacrifices,

and put your trust in the Lord.

6There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!

Let the light of your face shine on us, O Lord!”

7You have put gladness in my heart

more than when their grain and wine abound.

8I will both lie down and sleep in peace;

for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety.
