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 honour suffer shame?
   How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies?
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.
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.
