Confident Plea for Deliverance from Enemies
To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
1 Answer me when I call, O God of my right!
You gave me room when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.(A)
2 How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame?
How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? Selah(B)
3 But know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.(C)
8 I will both lie down and sleep in peace,
for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety.(H)
- 4.4 Or are angry
