To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of Dawid.
1 Hear me when I call, O God (Elohim) of my righteousness! You have enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2 O you sons of men, how long will you turn my glory into shame? How long will you love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
3 But know that יהוה hath set apart him that is holy (chasid) for Himself; יהוה 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 יהוה.
6 There be many that say, “Who will shew us any good?” יהוה, lift You up the light of Your countenance upon us.
7 You have 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 You, יהוה, only makest me dwell in safety.
