To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
"Hear me when I call,
O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved me in my distress;
Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.
But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly;
The Lord will hear when I call to Him.
Be angry, and do not sin.
Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
And put your trust in the Lord.
Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
You have put gladness in my heart...
I will both lie down in peace and sleep;
For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."
(Verses 1, 3-5, 6, 7, 8)
