To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.Evening Prayer. Psalm 4לַמְנַצֵּחַ בִּנְגִינֹות מִזְמֹור לְדָוִד׃
4 1Answer me when I call, O God of my right!
You have given me room when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.
 בְּקָרְאִי עֲנֵנִי אֱלֹהֵי צִדְקִי בַּצָּר הִרְחַבְתָּ לִּי חָנֵּנִי וּשְׁמַע תְּפִלָּתִי׃
2O men, how long shall my honour suffer shame?
How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies? Selah
 בְּנֵי אִישׁ עַד־מֶה כְבֹודִי לִכְלִמָּה תֶּאֱהָבוּן רִיק תְּבַקְשׁוּ כָזָב סֶלָה׃
3But know that Yahweh has set apart the godly for himself;
Yahweh hears when I call to him.
 וּדְעוּ כִּי־הִפְלָה יְהוָה חָסִיד לֹו יְהוָה יִשְׁמַע בְּקָרְאִי אֵלָיו׃
4Be angry, but sin not;
commune with your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah
 רִגְזוּ וְאַל־תֶּחֱטָאוּ אִמְרוּ בִלְבַבְכֶם עַל־מִשְׁכַּבְכֶם וְדֹמּוּ סֶלָה׃
5Offer right sacrifices,
and put your trust in Yahweh.
 זִבְחוּ זִבְחֵי־צֶדֶק וּבִטְחוּ אֶל־יְהוָה׃
6There are many who say,
"O that we might see some good!
Lift up O Yahweh,
the light of your countenance upon us!"
 רַבִּים אֹמְרִים מִי־יַרְאֵנוּ טֹוב נְסָה־עָלֵינוּ אֹור פָּנֶיךָ יְהוָה׃
7You have put more joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and wine abound.
 נָתַתָּה שִׂמְחָה בְלִבִּי מֵעֵת דְּגָנָם וְתִירֹושָׁם רָבּוּ׃
8In peace I will both lie down and sleep;
for you alone, O Yahweh, make me dwell in safety.
 בְּשָׁלֹום יַחְדָּו אֶשְׁכְּבָה וְאִישָׁן כִּי־אַתָּה יְהוָה לְבָדָד לָבֶטַח תֹּושִׁיבֵנִי׃

Notes: This page displays passages from the katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
