Psalm 4

Psalm 4a

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

Answer mep when I call to you,

my righteous God.

Give me relief from my distress;q

have mercyr on me and hear my prayer.s

How long will you people turn my gloryt into shame?u

How long will you love delusions and seek false godsb?c v

Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servantw for himself;

the Lord hearsx when I call to him.

Tremble andd do not sin;y

when you are on your beds,z

search your hearts and be silent.

Offer the sacrifices of the righteous

and trust in the Lord.a

Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”

Let the light of your face shine on us.b

Fill my heartc with joyd

when their grain and new winee abound.

In peacef I will lie down and sleep,g

for you alone, Lord,

make me dwell in safety.h
