Psalm 4

                  For the director of music. With stringed 

                        instruments. A psalm of  David.

1 Answer me when I call to you,

O my righteous God.

Give me relief from my distress;

be merciful to me and hear my prayer.

2 How long, O men, will you turn my glory into

shame?

How long will you love delusions and seek 

false gods?

3 Know that the Lord has set apart the godly for

himself,

the Lord will hear when I call to him.

4 In your anger do not sin;

when you are on your beds,

search your hearts and be silent.

5 Offer right sacrifices

and trust in the Lord.

6 Many are asking, “Who can show us any

good?”

Let the light of your face shine upon us,

O Lord.

7 You have filled my heart with greater joy

than when their grain and new wine abound.

8 will lie down and sleep in peace,

for you alone, O Lord,

make me dwell in safety.
