THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 4 ©
David prays for a gracious hearing. He rebukes his enemies, and exhorts them to repentance; he is cheered, content, and at rest in the grace of God.
To the chief 1Musician on 2Neginoth, A Psalm of David.
HEAR me when I 3call, O God of my 4righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
5O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my 6glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after 7leasing?a8Selah.
But know that the LORD 9hath set apart 10him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
11Standb in awe, and sin not: 12commune with your own heart upon your bed, and 13be still. Selah.
Offerc the 14sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
There be many that say, 15Who will 16shew us any good? LORD, 17lift thou up the 18light of thy countenance upon us.
19Thou hast put 20gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
Id will both lay me down in 21peace, and sleep: 22for thou, LORD, only makest me dwelle in safety.
