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 righteousness! 

      You have given me relief when I was in distress. 

      Be gracious to me and hear my prayer! 


      2 O men, how long shall my honor be turned into shame? 

      How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? Selah 

      3 But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; 

      the LORD hears when I call to him. 


      4 Be angry, and do not sin; 

      ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah 

      5 Offer right sacrifices, 

      and put your trust in the LORD. 


      6 There are many who say, “Who will show us some good? 

      Lift up the light of your face upon us, O LORD!” 

      7 You have put more joy in my heart 

      than they have when their grain and wine abound. 


      8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep; 

      for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
