David prayeth God to hear him: he reproveth his enemies, and exhorteth them. Man's happiness consisteth in the favour of God.
0 To the achief Musician on 1Neginoth, A Psalm of David.
1 Hear me when I call, 1O God of my righteousness: thou 2hast enlarged me when I was in distress; ahave mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2 O ye 1sons of men, how long will ye turn 2my glory into shame? how long 3will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
3 But know that the Lord 1hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord 2will hear when I call unto him.
4 1Stand in awe, and sin not: 2commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
5 Offer 1the sacrifices of righteousness, and 2put your trust in the Lord.
6 there be 1many that say, Who will shew us any good? Lord, 2lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
7 Thou 1hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
8 I 1will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
