To the director on stringed instruments.+ A melody of David.
In the distress you must make broad space for me.
Show me favor+ and hear my prayer.
[While] YOU keep loving empty things,
[While] YOU keep seeking to find a lie? Seʹlah.
Jehovah himself will hear when I call to him.+
Have YOUR say in YOUR heart, upon YOUR bed,+ and keep silent. Seʹlah.
6 There are many saying: “Who will show us good?”
Lift up the light of your face upon us,+ O Jehovah.
Greater than in the time when their grain and their new wine have abounded.+
