Psalm 4 GNT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Answer me when I pray, O God, my defender! When I was in trouble, you helped me. Be kind to me now and hear my prayer. 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 will you people insult me? How long will you love what is worthless and go after what is false? 2 How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shame ? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods ? "Selah"
3 Remember that the Lord has chosen the righteous for his own, and he hears me when I call to him. 3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him.
4 Tremble with fear and stop sinning; think deeply about this, when you lie in silence on your beds. 4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. "Selah"
5 Offer the right sacrifices to the Lord, and put your trust in him. 5 Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.
6 There are many who pray: "Give us more blessings, O Lord. Look on us with kindness!" 6 Many are asking, "Who can show us any good?" Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD.
7 But the joy that you have given me is more than they will ever have with all their grain and wine. 7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
8 When I lie down, I go to sleep in peace; you alone, O Lord, keep me perfectly safe. 8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
