Psalms 4

Answer Me When I Call

To the a choirmaster: with b stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

Answer me when I call, O God of my c righteousness!
You have d given me relief when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
O men,
Or  O men of rank
how long shall my honor be turned into shame?
How long will you love vain words and seek after f lies?  Selah
But know that the  Lord has g set apart h the godly for himself;
the  Lord hears when I call to him.
i Be angry,
Or  Be agitated
and do not sin;
k ponder in your own hearts l on your beds, and be silent.  Selah
Offer m right sacrifices,
and put your n trust in the  Lord.
There are many who say, “Who will show us some good?
o Lift up p the light of your face upon us, O  Lord!”
You have put q more joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and wine abound.
In peace I will both r lie down and sleep;
for you alone, O  Lord, make me s dwell in safety.
