1 To the chiefe Musician on Neginoth, A Psalme of Dauid. Heare me, when I call, O God of my righteousnesse: thou hast inlarged mee when I was in distresse, haue mercy vpon me, and heare my prayer.
2 O ye sonnes of men, how long will yee turne my glory into shame? how long will yee loue vanitie, and seeke after leasing? Selah.
3 But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly, for himselfe: the Lord will heare when I call vnto him.
4 Stand in awe, and sinne not: commune with your owne heart vpon your bed, and be still. Selah.
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousnesse, and put your trust in the Lord.
6 There be many that say, Who wil shew vs any good? Lord lift thou vp the light of thy countenance vpon vs.
7 Thou hast put gladnesse in my heart, more then in the time that their corne and their wine increased.
8 I will both lay mee downe in peace, and sleepe: for thou Lord only makest me dwell in safetie.
