Psalm 4

Answer Me When I Call

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

1 Answer me when I call, O God of my 1righteousness! You have 2given me relief when I was in distress. Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
2 O men,a how long shall my honor be turned into shame? How long will you love vain words and seek after 3lies? Selah
3 But know that the LORD has 4set apart 5the godly for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him.
4 6Be angry,b and do not sin; 7ponder in your own hearts 8on your beds, and be silent. Selah
5 Offer 9right sacrifices, and put your 10trust in the LORD.
6 There are many who say, "Who will show us some good? 11Lift up 12the light of your face upon us, O LORD!"
7 You have put 13more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound.
8 In peace I will both 14lie down and sleep; for you alone, O LORD, make me 15dwell in safety.
