For the choir director; with stringed instruments; a psalm by David.
1 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness. You have freed me from my troubles. Have pity on me, and hear my prayer!
2 You important people, how long are you going to insult my honor? How long are you going to love what is empty and seek what is a lie? Selah 3 Know that the Lord singles out godly people for himself. The Lord hears me when I call to him. 4 Tremble and do not sin. Think about this on your bed and remain quiet. Selah 5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness by trusting the Lord.
6 Many are saying, “Who can show us anything good?” Let the light of your presence shine on us, O Lord. 7 You put more joy in my heart than when their grain and new wine increase. 8 I fall asleep in peace the moment I lie down because you alone, O Lord, enable me to live securely.
