Psalm 4 Revised Standard Version

An Evening Prayer of Trust in God

4 1  To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David. Answer me when I call, O God of my right! Thou hast given me room when I was in distress. Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer. 2  O men, how long shall my honor suffer shame? How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies? [Selah] 3  But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him. 4  Be angry, but sin not; commune with your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. [Selah] 5  Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the Lord.

6  There are many who say, "O that we might see some good! Lift up the light of thy countenance upon us, O Lord!" 7  Thou hast put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. 8  In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for thou alone, O Lord, makest me dwell in safety.
