2In vain you rise early
and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat—
for he grants sleep to those he loves.
1 Listen to my prayer, O God,
do not ignore my plea;
2 hear me and answer me.
6 I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.
7 I would flee far away
and stay in the desert;
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
