Psalm 4 (Hide Context)

4:1 For the music director, to be accompanied by stringed instruments; a psalm of David.

When I call out, answer me,

O God who vindicates me!

Though I am hemmed in, you will lead me into a wide, open place.

Have mercy on me and respond to my prayer!

2 You men, how long will you try to turn my honor into shame?

How long will you love what is worthless

and search for what is deceptive? (Selah)

3 Realize that the LORD shows the godly special favor;

the LORD responds when I cry out to him.

4 Tremble with fear and do not sin!

Meditate as you lie in bed, and repent of your ways! (Selah)

5 Offer the prescribed sacrifices

and trust in the LORD!

6 Many say, "Who can show us anything good?"

Smile upon us, LORD!

7 You make me happier

than those who have abundant grain and wine.

8 I will lie down and sleep peacefully,

for you, LORD, make me safe and secure.
