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?
          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.

The Psalms

BOOK I

(Psalms 1-41)

Psalm 1

The Two Ways


1 Happy are those
   who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
   or sit in the seat of scoffers;
2 but their delight is in the law of the Lord,
   and on his law they meditate day and night.
3 They are like trees
   planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
   and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.


4 The wicked are not so,
   but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgement,
   nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
   but the way of the wicked will perish.
