Yahweh Makes Me Abide in Safety
For the choir director. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved me in my distress;
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.
O sons of men, how long will my glory become a reproach?
How long will you love what is worthless and seek falsehood? Selah. 3
But know that Yahweh has set apart the holy one for Himself;
Yahweh hears when I call to Him.
Tremble, and do not sin;
Ponder in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. 5
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
And trust in Yahweh.
Many are saying, “Who will show us good?”
Lift up the light of Your face upon us, O Yahweh! 7
You have put gladness in my heart,
More than when their grain and new wine abound. 8
In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Yahweh, make me to abide in safety.
