1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness;*
you set me free when I was in trouble; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2 O you children of men, how long will you blaspheme my honor,*
and have such pleasure in vanity, and seek after falsehood?
3 Know this also, that the Lord has chosen for himself the one that is godly;*
when I call upon the Lord, he will hear me.
4 Stand in awe, and sin not;*
commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.
5 Offer the sacrifice of righteousness*
and put your trust in the Lord.
6 There are many that say, "Who will show us any good?"*
Lord, lift up the light of your countenance upon us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart,*
more than when others' grain and wine and oil increased.
8 I will lay me down in peace, and take my rest;*
for you, Lord, only, make me dwell in safety.
