For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A Davidic psalm.
2 How long, exalted men, will my honor be insulted? How long will you love what is worthless and pursue a lie?Selah 3 Know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for Himself; the Lord will hear when I call to Him. 4 Be angry[b] and do not sin; on your bed, reflect in your heart and be still.Selah 5 Offer sacrifices in righteousness[c] and trust in the Lord.
6 Many are saying, “Who can show us anything good?” Look on us with favor, Lord.
7 You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and new wine abound. 8 I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, Lord, make me live in safety.
