Psalm 4

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

1When 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!

2You 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)

3Realize that the Lord shows the godly special favor;

the Lord responds when I cry out to him.

4Tremble with fear and do not sin!

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

5Offer the prescribed sacrifices

and trust in the Lord!

6Many say, “Who can show us anything good?”

Smile upon us, Lord!

7You make me happier

than those who have abundant grain and wine.

8I will lie down and sleep peacefully,

for you, Lord, make me safe and secure.

Psalm 3
