For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David.
1 Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.
3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to Him.
4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.
5 Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.
6 Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?” Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD.
7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
