(ESV)
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
 
1
Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
 

 

You have given me relief when I was in distress.
 

 

Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
 
 
 
2
O men, how long shall my honor be turned into shame?
 

 

How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? Selah
 
3
But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself;
 

 

the LORD hears when I call to him.
 
 
 
4
Be angry, and do not sin;
 

 

ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah
 
5
Offer right sacrifices,
 

 

and put your trust in the LORD.
 
 
 
6
There are many who say, “Who will show us some good?
 

 

Lift up the light of your face upon us, O LORD!”
 
7
You have put more joy in my heart
 

 

than they have when their grain and wine abound.
 
 
 
8
In peace I will both lie down and sleep;
 

 

for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
