Psalms 4

1

TO THE CHOIRMASTER: WITH STRINGED INSTRUMENTS. A PSALM OF DAVID. 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!

2

O men, how long shall my honor be turned into shame? How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? Selah

3

But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him.

4

Be angry, and do not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah

5

Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the LORD.

6

There are many who say, "Who will show us some good? Lift up the light of your face upon us, O LORD!"

7

You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound.

8

In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
