Psalms 4

Answer Me When I Call!

1 For the choirmaster. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David. Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved my distress; show me grace and hear my prayer. 2 How long, O men, will my honor be maligned? How long will you love vanity and seek after lies?
Or false gods
3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for Himself; the LORD will hear when I call to Him. 4 Be angry, yet do not sin;
Or In your anger do not sin (see LXX), or Tremble with fear and do not sin
on your bed, search your heart and be still. Selah
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness and trust in the LORD. 6 Many ask, “Who can show us the good?” Shine the light of Your face upon us, O LORD. 7 You have filled my heart with more joy than when grain and new wine abound. 8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
