To the Chief Musician on Neginoth. A Psalm of David
1 When I cry, answer me, O God of my righteousness! In distress thou hast enlarged me; Have pity upon me, and hear my prayer.
2 O ye sons of men! how long my glory will ye try to put to shame? Will ye love vanity, will ye seek after lying? Selah.
3 But know that chosen hath Jehovah the merciful man for himself: Jehovah will hear when I cry unto him.
4 Tremble and ye shall not sin; Discourse in your heart upon your bed, and be silent. Selah.
5 Sacrifice the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the Lord.
6 Many say, |Who will show us good?| Lift thou up on us the light of thy countenance, O Jehovah!
7 Thou hast given joy to my heart More than theirs in the time that their corn and their wine are increased.
8 In peace [as if] with a multitude I will sleep and take rest, For thou, O Jehovah! in safety hast placed me, [though] alone.
