O men,a how long shall my honor be turned into shame? How long will you love vain words and seek after 3lies? Selah

46Be angry,b and do not sin; 7ponder in your own hearts 8on your beds, and be silent. Selah
Offer 9right sacrifices, and put your 10trust in the LORD.
There are many who say, "Who will show us some good? 11Lift up 12the light of your face upon us, O LORD!"
You have put 13more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound.
In peace I will both 14lie down and sleep; for you alone, O LORD, make me 15dwell in safety.
