To the Chief Musician. On Neginoth. A Psalm of David.
1Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
Thou hast relieved me in distress;
have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?
How long will ye love vanity, and seek after falsehood?
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.
5Offer the offerings of righteousness,
and put your trust in the Lord.
6There be many that say, Who will show us any good?
Lift Thou up the light of Thy countenance upon us, O Lord.
7Thou hast put gladness in my heart,
more than in the time when their corn and their wine increased.
8I will both lay me down in peace and sleep;
for Thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning, both now and ever,
and unto ages of ages. Amen.
