Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And put your trust in Jehovah.
Many there are that say, Who will show us [any] good? Jehovah, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
Thou hast put gladness in my heart, More than [they have] when their grain and their new wine are increased.
In peace will I both lay me down and sleep; For thou, Jehovah, alone makest me dwell in safety.
