PSALM 4 Evening Prayer of Trust in God. For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David. 4 1Answer me when I call, O God [D]of my righteousness! You have [E]relieved me in my distress; Be gracious to me and hear my prayer. 2O sons of men, how long will my [F]honor become a reproach? How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? [G]Selah. 3But know that the Lord has [H]set apart the godly man for Himself; The Lord hears when I call to Him. 4[I]Tremble, [J]and do not sin; [K]Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. 5Offer [L]the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the Lord. 6Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?” Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord! 7You have put gladness in my heart, More than when their grain and new wine abound. 8In peace I will [M]both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.
