To the chief Musician on Neginoth. A Psalm of David
David's prayer for audience
||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.
||O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
Trust in the Lord
||But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto him.
||Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
||Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.
||There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? Lord, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
||Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
||I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
