Psalms 4

Answer Me When I Call

To the achoirmaster: with bstringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1 Answer me when I call, O God of my crighteousness!
You have dgiven me relief when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
2 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 flies?  Selah
3But know that the  Lord has gset apart hthe godly for himself;
the  Lord hears when I call to him.
4 iBe angry,
Or  Be agitated
and do not sin;
kponder in your own hearts lon your beds, and be silent.  Selah
5Offer mright sacrifices,
and put your ntrust in the  Lord.
6 There are many who say, “Who will show us some good?
oLift up pthe light of your face upon us, O  Lord!”
7You have put qmore joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and wine abound.
8 In peace I will both rlie down and sleep;
for you alone, O  Lord, make me sdwell in safety.
