Confident Plea for Deliverance from Enemies
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
Thou hast given me room when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.
How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies?Selah
3 But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.
commune with your own hearts on your beds, and be silent.Selah
5 Offer right sacrifices,
and put your trust in the Lord.
Lift up the light of thy countenance upon us, O Lord!”
7 Thou hast put more joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and wine abound.
for thou alone, O Lord, makest me dwell in safety.
