Psalm 4

Confident Plea for Deliverance from Enemies

To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1

Answer me when I call, O God of my right!

You gave me room when I was in distress.

Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.

 

2

How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame?

How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies?Selah

3

But know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for himself;

the Lord hears when I call to him.

 

4

When you are disturbed, do not sin;

ponder it on your beds, and be silent.Selah

5

Offer right sacrifices,

and put your trust in the Lord.

 

6

There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!

Let the light of your face shine on us, O Lord!”

7

You have put gladness in my heart

more than when their grain and wine abound.

 

8

I will both lie down and sleep in peace;

for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety.
