Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have given me relief when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
O men, how long shall my honor be turned into shame?
How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? Selah
But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself;
the LORD hears when I call to him. Be angry, and do not sin;
ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah
Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the LORD.
There are many who say, “Who will show us some good?
Lift up the light of your face upon us, O LORD!”
You have put more joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and wine abound.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep;
for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
A good psalm.ReplyDelete

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I fully realise that your joy is a given; maybe I envy and admire you and others whose certainty is rock solid. It is so much harder for those of us who ask questions.ReplyDelete
It is good to ask questions. That is how we learn.Delete

Are not the Psalms just perfect to read at any time?? Hope you are having a delightful day. Hugs!ReplyDelete
I love how Davis is so honest in his psalms. He cries out to God and tells him of his sorrows and trials, but he always ends triumphantly by putting his trust in God's great might.ReplyDelete
С миром я лягу и усну;ибо только ты, ГОСПОДИ, даруешь мне жить в безопасности. Это замечательный слова! Мира ВСЕМ!ReplyDelete
To all, this says:
In peace I will lie down and fall asleep; for only you, LORD, grant me to live in safety. That's a wonderful word! Peace to ALL!
