|[To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.]||Evening Prayer. Psalm 4|
|Answer me when I call, O God of my right! |
Thou hast given me room when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.
|O men, how long shall my honor suffer shame? |
How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies? [Selah]
|But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; |
the LORD hears when I call to him.
|Be angry, but sin not; |
commune with your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. [Selah]
|Offer right sacrifices, |
and put your trust in the LORD.
|There are many who say, |
"O that we might see some good!
Lift up O LORD,
the light of thy countenance upon us!"
|Thou hast put more joy in my heart |
than they have when their grain and wine abound.
|In peace I will both lie down and sleep; |
for thou alone, O Lord, makest me dwell in safety.
