1 To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David. Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me [when I was] in distress; have mercy upon 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 O ye sons of men, how long [will ye turn] my glory into shame? [how long] will ye love vanity, [and] seek after falsehood? 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 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD 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 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. 4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. "Selah"

7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time [when] their corn and their wine increased. 7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
