Psalms - Chapter 4

1

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David. 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 shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods? Selah


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. Selah


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.
