Psalm 4

<< Psalm 4 >>
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
 

1When I called you, you answered me, my God, and the Savior of my righteousness; in my sufferings you inspired me; show mercy upon me and hear my prayer.

2Sons of men, how long will you obscure my honor, love emptiness and seek lies - forever?

3Know that Lord Jehovah has set apart The Chosen One for himself with wonders; Lord Jehovah will hear when I call him.

4Tremble in awe and you will not sin; speak in your hearts and meditate upon your beds.

5Offer the sacrifices of righteousness and hope in Lord Jehovah.

6There are many who say, “Who will show us good and will shed upon us the light of his face?”

7Lord Jehovah, you have given your joy into my heart more than the time that their grain and their wine and their oil increased in peace together.

8And I shall lie down and sleep, because you, Lord Jehovah, make me dwell alone in stillness.
