For the director of music. A psalm of David to be played on stringed instruments.
1 My faithful God, answer me when I call out to you. Give me rest from my trouble. Have mercy on me. Hear my prayer.
2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love what will certainly fail you? How long will you pray to statues of gods? 3 Remember that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself. The Lord hears me when I call out to him.
4 Tremble and do not sin. When you are in bed, look deep down inside yourself and be silent. 5 Offer to the Lord the sacrifices that godly people offer. Trust in him.
6 Lord, many are asking, “Who will make us successful?” Lord, may you do good things for us. 7 Fill my heart with joy when the people have lots of grain and fresh wine. 8 In peace I will lie down and sleep. Lord, you alone keep me safe.
