P  S  A  L .   I  I  I  I   (4)

To him that excelleth on Neginoth. A Psalme of David.

1   HEare me when I call, O God of my righteousnesse: thou hast set me at libertie, when I was in distresse: have mercy upon me, and hearken unto my prayer.
2   O ye sonnes of men, how long will ye turne my glory into shame, loving vanity, and seeking lies? Selah.
3   For be ye sure that the Lord hath chosen to himselfe a godly man: the Lord will heare when I call unto him.
4   Tremble, and sinne not: examine your own heart upon your beds, and be stil. Selah.
5   Offer the sacrifices of righteousnesse, and trust in the Lord.
6   Many say, Who will shew us any good? but Lord lift up the light of thy countenance upon us.
7   Thou hast given me more joy of heart, than they have had, when their wheate, and their wine did abound.
8   I will lay me downe, and also sleepe in peace: for thou Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
