Evening Prayer of Trust in God
 
 
For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
 
 
[1]  ANSWER me when I call, O God of my righteousness;
Thou hast set me at large when I was in distress:
Have 1 mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
[2]  O ye sons of men, how long shall my glory be turned into dishonor?
How long will ye love vanity, and seek after falsehood?  [Selah
[3]  But know that Jehovah hath set apart for himself him 2 that is godly:
How long will ye love vanity, and seek after falsehood?  [Selah
 
[4]  But know that Jehovah hath set apart for himself him 3 that is godly:
Jehovah will hear when I call unto him.
[5]  Stand 4 in awe, and sin not:
Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.  [Selah.
 
[6]  Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
And put your trust in Jehovah.
[7]  Many there are that say, Who will show us any good?
Jehovah, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
[8]  Thou hast put gladness in my heart.
More than they have when their grain and their new wine are increased.
[9]  In peace will I both lay me down and sleep;
For thou, Jehovah, alone 5 makest me dwell in safety.
