Evening Prayer of Trust in God.
For F29 the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
1 Answer R57 me when I R58 call, O God of F30 my righteousness!
You have relieved R59 F31 me in my distress;
Be gracious R60 to me and hear R61 my prayer.
2 O sons of men, how long will my R62 honor F32 become a R63 reproach?
How long will you love what R64 is worthless and aim at deception? R65 Selah. F33
3 But know that the LORD has set R66 F34 apart the godly R67 man for Himself;
The LORD hears R68 when I call to Him.
4 Tremble, R69 F35 and R70 F36 do not sin;
Meditate R71 F37 in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
5 Offer the F38 sacrifices R72 of righteousness,
And trust R73 in the LORD.
6 Many are saying, "Who R74 will show us any good?"
Lift R75 up the light of Your countenance upon us, O LORD!
7 You have put gladness R76 in my heart,
More than when their grain and new wine abound.
8 In peace I will both F39 lie R77 down and sleep,
For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell R78 in safety.
