[NAS]  [VSN]  [<<]  [>>]
Psalm 4

Evening Prayer of Trust in God.

For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1 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.

2 O sons of men, how long will my honor become a reproach?
          How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception?

3 But know that the LORD has set apart the godly man for Himself;
          The LORD hears when I call to Him.

4 Tremble, and do not sin;
          Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still.

5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
          And trust in the LORD.

6 Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?”
          Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O LORD!

7 You have put gladness in my heart,
          More than when their grain and new wine abound.

8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
          For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety.
