Answer me1 when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress;2 have mercy3 on me and hear my prayer.42
How long will you men turn my glory5 into shame?6 How long will you love delusions and seek false godsa ?b73
Know that the LORD has set apart his faithful servant8 for himself; the LORD hears9 when I call to him.
Tremble andc do not sin;10 when you are on your beds,11 search your hearts and be silent.
Offer the sacrifices of the righteous and trust in the LORD.126
Many, LORD, are asking, "Who will bring us prosperity?" Let the light of your face shine on us.137
Fill my heart14 with joy15 when their grain and new wine16 abound.
In peace17 I will lie down and sleep,18 for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.19
