Psalm 4
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

Evening Prayer of Trust in God.

To the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!

You have freed me when I was hemmed in and relieved me when I was in distress;

Be gracious to me and hear [and respond to] my prayer.

2O sons of men, how long will my honor and glory be [turned into] shame?

How long will you [my enemies] love worthless (vain, futile) things and seek deception and lies? Selah.

3But know that the LORD has set apart for Himself [and dealt wonderfully with] the godly man [the one of honorable character and moral courage--the one who does right].

The LORD hears and responds when I call to Him.

4Tremble [with anger or fear], and do not sin;

Meditate in your heart upon your bed and be still [reflect on your sin and repent of your rebellion]. Selah.

5Offer righteous sacrifices;

Trust [confidently] in the LORD.

6Many are saying, “Oh, that we might see some good!”

Lift up the light of Your face upon us, O LORD.

7You have put joy in my heart,

More than [others know] when their wheat and new wine have yielded abundantly.

8In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep,

For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety and confident trust.
