New International Version
How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods
King James Bible
O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
Darby Bible Translation
Ye sons of men, till when is my glory [to be put] to shame? [How long] will ye love vanity, will ye seek after a lie? Selah.
World English Bible
You sons of men, how long shall my glory be turned into dishonor? Will you love vanity, and seek after falsehood? Selah.
Young's Literal Translation
Sons of men! till when is my glory for shame? Ye love a vain thing, ye seek a lie. Selah.
Psalm 4:2 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
O ye sons of men - בני איש beney ish, ye powerful men - ye who are now at the head of affairs, or who are leaders of the multitude.
Love vanity - The poor, empty, shallow-brained, pretty-faced Absalom; whose prospects are all vain, and whose promises are all empty!
Seek after leasing? - This is a Saxon word, from falsehood, from to lie. Cardmarden has adopted this word in his translation, Rouen, 1566. It is in none of the Bibles previously to that time, nor in any after, as far as my own collection affords me evidence; and appears to have been borrowed by King James's translators from the above.
Selah - Mark this! See what the end will be!

Fifth Sunday after Trinity Exhortation to the Fruits of Faith.
But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
Everyone lies to their neighbor; they flatter with their lips but harbor deception in their hearts.
I hate those who cling to worthless idols; as for me, I trust in the LORD.
Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.
Surely they intend to topple me from my lofty place; they take delight in lies. With their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse.
For I endure scorn for your sake, and shame covers my face.
You know how I am scorned, disgraced and shamed; all my enemies are before you.
