For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness; thou hast set me at large when I wasin distress: have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

2O ye sons of men, how long shall my glory be turned into dishonour? how longwill ye love vanity, and seek after falsehood?

Selah

3But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.

4Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.

Selah

5Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.

6Many there be that say, Who will shew us anygood? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.

7Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than they havewhen their corn and their wine are increased.

8In peace will I both lay me down and sleep: for thou, LORD, alone makest me dwell in safety.
