Psalm 4


For the director of music.  With stringed instruments.  A psalm of David.



1                    Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God.  Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.


2                    How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shamea?  How long will you love delusions and seek false godsb?



3                    Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to Him.


4                    In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.



5                    Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.


6                    Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?”  Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD.


7                    You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.


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

a2 Or you dishonor my Glorious One

b2 Or seek lies
