Psalms 4

Psalm 4
A Night Prayer
For the choir director: with stringed instruments.#Ps 6; Is 38:20; Hab 3:19 A psalm of David.
1Answer me when I call,
God, who vindicates me.#4:1 Or God of my righteousness#Ps 7:8; 26:1; 35:24
You freed me from affliction;#Ps 25:17; 107:6,13
be gracious to me and hear my prayer.
2How long, exalted ones,#4:2 Lit long, sons of a man will my honor be insulted?#Ps 69:7–10,19–20
How long will you love what is worthless#Ps 12:2
and pursue a lie? Selah
3Know that the Lord has set apart
the faithful for himself;
the Lord will hear when I call to him.
4Be angry#4:4 Or Tremble and do not sin;#Eph 4:26
reflect in your heart while on your bed and be silent.#Ps 77:6; 119:55 Selah
5Offer sacrifices in righteousness#4:5 Or Offer right sacrifices#Dt 33:19; Ps 51:19
and trust in the Lord.#Ps 37:3,5; 62:8
6Many are asking, “Who can show us anything good?”
Let the light of your face shine on us, Lord.#Nm 6:25; Ps 80:3
7You have put more joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and new wine abound.#Is 9:3
8I will both lie down and sleep in peace,#Ps 3:5
for you alone, Lord, make me live in safety.#Lv 25:18; Dt 12:10; Jr 32:37; Ezk 34:25
