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.
