|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.
