Psalm 4

Only God can keep

you safe from affliction

For the director of music. A psalm of David to be played on stringed instruments.


My faithful God, answer me when I call out to you. Give me rest from my trouble.

Show me your favour. Hear my prayer.

2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
      How long will you love what will certainly fail you?
      How long will you pray to statues of gods?

3 remember that the Lord has set his faithful people apart for himself.
      The Lord will hear me when I call out to him.
4 When you are angry, do not sin.
      When you are in bed,
      look deep down inside you and be silent.

5 Offer sacrifices to the Lord in the right way.
      Trust in him.

6 Many are asking, “Who can show us anything good?”
      Lord, let us see your face smiling on us with favour.

7 You have filled my heart with great joy.
      It is greater than the joy of people who have lots of grain and fresh wine.

8 I will lie down and sleep in peace.
      Lord, you alone keep me safe.
