Psalm 4

[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.
