For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David.
O my righteous God.Give me relief from my distress;be merciful to me and hear my prayer.2 How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shame?How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself;the LORD will hear when I call to him.4 In your anger do not sin;when you are on your beds,search your hearts and be silent.
5 Offer right sacrificesand trust in the LORD.6 Many are asking, "Who can show us any good?"Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD.7 You have filled my heart with greater joythan when their grain and new wine abound.8 I will lie down and sleep in peace,for you alone, O LORD,
make me dwell in safety.
