1Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness. Give me relief in my distress. Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.
2O children of high-born men, how long will my reputation be turned into shame? How long will you love vanity? How long will you seek after falsehood? Selah.
3But know that Yahweh has set apart the godly person for himself; Yahweh will hear when I call to him.
4You can be angry, but do not sin. Speak in your heart on your bed, and keep silent. Selah.
5Sacrifice the sacrifices of righteousness, and trust in Yahweh.
6Many are saying, “Who will show us good?” O Yahweh, lift up upon us the light of your face.
7You have placed joy in my heart; more joy than the season when their grain and new wine abound.
8In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for you alone, Yahweh, make me live in safety.
