2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love what will certainly fail you? How long will you pray to statues of gods? "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 Remember that the LORD has set his faithful people apart for himself. The LORD will hear me when I call out to him. 3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him.
4 When you are angry, do not sin. When you are in bed, look deep down inside you and be silent. "Selah" 4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. "Selah"
5 Offer sacrifices to the LORD in the right way. Trust in him. 5 Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.
6 Many are asking, "Who can show us anything good?" Lord, let us see your face smiling on us with favor. 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 great joy. It is greater than the joy of people who have lots of grain and fresh 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. Lord, you alone keep me safe. 8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
