For the choir director; on stringed instruments

Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!

You have relieved me in my distress;

Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.

O sons of men, how long will my honor become a reproach?

How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? Selah

But know that the LORD has set apart the godly man for Himself;

The LORD hears when I call to Him.

Treble, and do not sin;

Meditate in your heart upon your bed and be still.


Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,

And trust in the LORD.

Psalm 4:1-5



How Blessed is the man

How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,

Nor stand in the path of sinners,

Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!

But his delight is the law of the LORD,

And in law he meditates day and night.

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,

Which yields its fruit in its season

And its leaf does not wither;

And in whatever he does, he prospers.

The wicked are not so,

But they are like chaff which the wind drive away,

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,

Nor sinners in the assembly ofthe righteous,

For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,

But the way of the wicked will perish.
