Psalms 4 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

4:1Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness;

Thou hast set me at large when I was in distress:

Have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

4:2O ye sons of men, how long shall my glory be turned into dishonor?

How long will ye love vanity, and seek after falsehood?


4:3But know that Jehovah hath set apart for himself him that is godly:

Jehovah will hear when I call unto him.

4:4Stand in awe, and sin not:

Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.


4:5Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,

And put your trust in Jehovah.

4:6Many there are that say, Who will show us any good?

Jehovah, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.

4:7Thou hast put gladness in my heart,

More than they have when their grain and their new wine are increased.

4:8In peace will I both lay me down and sleep;

For thou, Jehovah, alone makest me dwell in safety.
