Psalm 4:1-8

(Of the Director; with string accompaniment. A psalm of David’s.) 4  When I call answer me, my God of the righteous cause:in distress you have relieved me; be gracious to me and hear my prayer. 2  Gentlemen, how long—heavy-witted ones, what for—will you love emptiness, seek after a lie? (Selah) 3  But know that Jehovah has distinguished a man of his friendship;Jehovah will hear when I call to him. 4  Tremble and do not sin;tell yourselves as you lie in your beds, and be quiet. (Selah) 5  Offer rightful sacrificesand trust to Jehovah. 6  Many are saying “Who will let us see anything good?”Lift up over us the light of your face, Jehovah. 7  You have put gladness in our heartssurpassing the time their grain and grape-juice are plentiful. 8  In peace I will lie down and go right to sleep, because you solely, Jehovah, cause me to live in security.
