An Evening Prayer of Trust in God
4 1 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 . 2 O sons of men , how long will my honor become a reproach ? How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception ? Selah . 3 But know that the Lord has set apart the godly man for Himself; The Lord hears when I call to Him. 4 Tremble , and do not sin ; Meditate in your heart upon your bed , and be still . Selah . 5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness , And trust in the Lord .
6 Many are saying , " Who will show us any good ?" Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord ! 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 Lord , make me to dwell in safety .
