4 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness; Thou hast set me at large (when I was) in distress: have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

2 O ye sons of men, how long shall my glory be turned into dishonor? (How long) will ye love vanity, and seek after falsehood? (Selah)

3 But know that Jehovah hath set apart for himself him that is godly: Jehovah will hear when I call unto him.

4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. (Selah)

5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in Jehovah.

6 Many there are that say, who will show us (any) good? Jehovah, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.

7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than (they have) when their grain and their new wine are increased.

8 In peace will I both lay me down and sleep; for thou, Jehovah, alone makest me dwell in safety.
