Psalm 4

4
Answer Me When I Call
To the #Ps. 61, title; Hab. 3:19choirmaster: with #Ps. 61, title; Hab. 3:19stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
1Answer me when I call, O God of my #Isa. 54:17; Jer. 23:6 righteousness!
You have #See Job 36:16given me relief when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
2O men,#4:2 Or O men of rank how long shall my honor be turned into shame?
How long will you love vain words and seek after #[Ps. 5:6]lies? Selah
3But know that the Lord has #[Ex. 11:7] set apart #[Ps. 50:5]the godly for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.
4 # Cited Eph. 4:26 Be angry,#4:4 Or Be agitated and do not sin;
# Ps. 77:6 ponder in your own hearts #See Ps. 42:8on your beds, and be silent. Selah
5Offer #Ps. 51:19; Deut. 33:19 right sacrifices,
and put your #Ps. 37:3; 62:8trust in the Lord.
6There are many who say, “Who will show us some good?
# Num. 6:26 Lift up #Ps. 89:15; [Ps. 31:16; 67:1; 80:3, 7, 19; 119:135]the light of your face upon us, O Lord!”
7You have put #[Isa. 9:3; 16:10; Jer. 48:38]more joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and wine abound.
8In peace I will both #See Ps. 3:5 lie down and sleep;
for you alone, O Lord, make me #Ps. 16:9; Lev. 25:18, 19; 26:5; Deut. 33:28dwell in safety.
