1 For the leader. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David: O God, my vindicator! Answer me when I call! When I was distressed, you set me free; now have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. 1 Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.
2 Men of rank, how long will you shame my honor, love what is vain, chase after lies? (Selah) 2 How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shame ? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods ? "Selah"
3 Understand that ADONAI sets apart the godly person for himself; ADONAI will hear when I call to him. 3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him.
4 You can be angry, but do not sin! Think about this as you lie in bed, and calm down. (Selah) 4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. "Selah"
5 Offer sacrifices rightly, and put your trust in ADONAI. 5 Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.
6 Many ask, "Who can show us some good?" ADONAI, lift the light of your face over us! 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 more joy than all their grain and new wine. 7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
8 I will lie down and sleep in peace; for, ADONAI, you alone make me live securely. 8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
