To the director; to be accompanied with stringed instruments. A melody of David.
Make a way of escape* for me in my distress.
Show me favor and hear my prayer.
2 You sons of men, how long will you turn my honor into humiliation?
How long will you love what is worthless and search for what is false? (Selah)
Jehovah will hear when I call to him.
Have your say in your heart, upon your bed, and keep silent. (Selah)
6 There are many saying: “Who will show us anything good?”
Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Jehovah.+
7 You have filled my heart with greater rejoicing
Than those who have an abundant harvest of grain and new wine.
