Evening Prayer of Trust in God.
[a]For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
2 O sons of men, how long will my [d]honor become a reproach?
How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? [e]Selah.
3 But know that the Lord has [f]set apart the godly man for Himself;
The Lord hears when I call to Him.
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 [k]both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.
