ContextAnswer Me When I Call!
1Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: you have enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. 2O you sons of men, how long will you turn my glory into shame? how long will you love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah. 3But know that the LORD has set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call to him. 4Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart on your bed, and be still.

LORD, lift you up the light of your countenance on us. 7You have put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. 8I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for you, LORD, only make me dwell in safety.
