Psalms 4

Psalms 4

Psalm 4
This is a song that David wrote.
Tell the music leader to use stringed instruments.
An evening song
1God, please answer me when I call aloud for help.
You are the one who shows that I am right.
Help me in my trouble.
Show me that you are kind.
Listen to me when I pray.
2Tell me this, you people:
How long will you refuse to respect me?
How long will you love stupid ideas?
How long will you agree with lies?
3The Lord is very kind to those who serve him.
He has chosen them to belong to himself.
So he listens when I pray to him.
4 Shake with fear and stop doing wrong things!
Lie on your bed and think quietly about your life.
5Offer the right sacrifices to the Lord.
Continue to trust in him.
6Many people say, ‘Will anyone do a good thing for us?’
Lord, let your face smile on us.
7You have made me very happy.
I am happier than anyone who has lots of food and wine.
8I will lie down and I will sleep in peace.
You, Lord, are the one who takes care of me,
and you keep me safe.

Encouraging and challenging you to seek intimacy with God every day.
