To the Chief Musician on Neginoth. A Psalm of David

1 When I cry, answer me, O God of my righteousness! In distress thou hast enlarged me; Have pity upon me, and hear my prayer.

2 O ye sons of men! how long my glory will ye try to put to shame? Will ye love vanity, will ye seek after lying? Selah.

3 But know that chosen hath Jehovah the merciful man for himself: Jehovah will hear when I cry unto him.

4 Tremble and ye shall not sin; Discourse in your heart upon your bed, and be silent. Selah.

5 Sacrifice the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the Lord.

6 Many say, “Who will show us good?” Lift thou up on us the light of thy countenance, O Jehovah!

7 Thou hast given joy to my heart More than theirs in the time that their corn and their wine are increased.

8 In peace [as if] with a multitude I will sleep and take rest, 313313     This line is freely rendered. For the literal translation, see the text as given in the commentary. For thou, O Jehovah! in safety hast placed me, [though] alone.
