To the chief Musician on Neginoth, a Psalm of David.
1 GOD of my justice, when I call
answer me: when distrest
thou hast enlarg’d me, shew me grace
and hear thou my request.
2 Ye sons of men, my glory turn
to shame how long will you?
how long will ye love vanity
and still deceit pursue?
3 But know the Lord doth for himself
set by his gracious saint:
the Lord will hear when I to him
do pour out my complaint.
4 Be stirred up, but do not sin,
within your heart upon your bed
and wholly silent be.
5 Let sacrifices of justice
for sacrifices be.
and confidently put your trust
on Jehovah do ye.
6 Many there be that say, O who
will cause us good to see?
the light, Lord, of thy countenance
let on us lifted be.
7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart,
more than the time wherein
their corn and also their new wine
have much increased been.
8 In peace with him I will lie down,
and take my sleep will I:
For thou, Lord, mak’st me dwell alone
in confident safety.
