Psalm 4

Yahweh Makes Me Abide in Safety

For the choir director. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved me in my distress;
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.

O sons of men, how long will my glory become a reproach?
How long will you love what is worthless and seek falsehood? Selah.
But know that Yahweh has set apart the holy one for Himself;
Yahweh hears when I call to Him.

Tremble, and do not sin;
Ponder in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
And trust in Yahweh.

Many are saying, “Who will show us good?”
Lift up the light of Your face upon us, O Yahweh!
You have put gladness in my heart,
More than when their grain and new wine abound.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Yahweh, make me to abide in safety.
