4:1In my calling answer Thou me, O God of my righteousness. In adversity Thou gavest enlargement to me; Favour me, and hear my prayer.
4:2Sons of men! till when is my glory for shame? Ye love a vain thing, ye seek a lie. Selah.
4:3And know ye that Jehovah Hath separated a saintly one to Himself. Jehovah heareth in my calling to Him.
4:4`Tremble ye, and do not sin;' Say ye thus in your heart on your bed, And be ye silent. Selah.
4:5Sacrifice ye sacrifices of righteousness, And trust ye unto Jehovah.
4:6Many are saying, `Who doth show us good?' Lift on us the light of Thy face, O Jehovah,
4:7Thou hast given joy in my heart, From the time their corn and their wine Have been multiplied.
4:8In peace together I lie down and sleep, For Thou, O Jehovah, alone, In confidence dost cause me to dwell!
5:1My sayings hear, O Jehovah, Consider my meditation.
5:2Be attentive to the voice of my cry, My king and my God, For unto Thee I pray habitually.
5:3Jehovah, at morning Thou hearest my voice, At morning I set in array for Thee, And I look out.
5:4For not a God desiring wickedness art Thou, Evil inhabiteth Thee not.
5:5The boastful station not themselves before Thine eyes: Thou hast hated all working iniquity.
5:6Thou destroyest those speaking lies, A man of blood and deceit Jehovah doth abominate.
5:7And I, in the abundance of Thy kindness, I enter Thy house, I bow myself toward Thy holy temple in Thy fear.
5:8O Jehovah, lead me in Thy righteousness, Because of those observing me, Make straight before me Thy way,
5:9For there is no stability in their mouth. Their heart is mischiefs, An open grave is their throat, Their tongue they make smooth.
5:10Declare them guilty, O God, Let them fall from their own counsels, In the abundance of their transgressions Drive them away, Because they have rebelled against Thee.
5:11And rejoice do all trusting in Thee, To the age they sing, and Thou coverest them over, And those loving Thy name exult in Thee.
5:12For Thou blessest the righteous, O Jehovah, As a buckler with favour dost compass him!
6:1O Jehovah, in Thine anger reprove me not, Nor in Thy fury chastise me.
6:2Favour me, O Jehovah, for I am weak, Heal me, O Jehovah, For troubled have been my bones,
6:3And my soul hath been troubled greatly, And Thou, O Jehovah, till when?
6:4Turn back, O Jehovah, draw out my soul, Save me for Thy kindness' sake.
6:5For there is not in death Thy memorial, In Sheol, who doth give thanks to Thee?
6:6I have been weary with my sighing, I meditate through all the night on my bed, With my tear my couch I waste.
6:7Old from provocation is mine eye, It is old because of all mine adversaries,
6:8Turn from me all ye workers of iniquity, For Jehovah heard the voice of my weeping,
6:9Jehovah hath heard my supplication, Jehovah my prayer receiveth.
6:10Ashamed and troubled greatly are all mine enemies, They turn back -- ashamed in a moment!
