The Safety of the FaithfulTo the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
1Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved me in my distress;
Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.
2How long, O you sons of men,
Will you turn my glory to shame?
How long will you love worthlessness
And seek falsehood?
3But know that ⚓the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly;
The Lord will hear when I call to Him.
4⚓Be angry, and do not sin.
⚓Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still.
5Offer ⚓the sacrifices of righteousness,
And ⚓put your trust in the Lord.
6There are many who say,
“Who will show us any good?”
⚓Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
7You have put ⚓gladness in my heart,
More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
8⚓I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
⚓For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
