English Standard Version
Answer Me When I Call
To the (A)choirmaster: with (B)stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
4 Answer me when I call, O God of my (C)righteousness!
You have (D)given me relief when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
2 O men,[a] how long shall my honor be turned into shame?
How long will you love vain words and seek after (E)lies? Selah
3 But know that the Lord has (F)set apart (G)the godly for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.
4 (H)Be angry,[b] and do not sin;
(I)ponder in your own hearts (J)on your beds, and be silent. Selah
5 Offer (K)right sacrifices,
and put your (L)trust in the Lord.
6 There are many who say, “Who will show us some good?
(M)Lift up (N)the light of your face upon us, O Lord!”
7 You have put (O)more joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and wine abound.
