Psalm 4

Answer Me When I Call!

For the choirmaster. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1Answer me when I call,

O God of my righteousness!

You have relieved my distress;

show me grace and hear my prayer.

2 How long, O men, will my honor be maligned?

How long will you love vanity and seek after lies a?


3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for Himself;

the LORD hears when I call to Him.

4 Be angry, yet do not sin; b 

on your bed, search your heart and be still.


5 Offer the sacrifices of the righteous

and trust in the LORD.

6 Many ask, “Who can show us the good?”

Shine the light of Your face upon us, O LORD.

7 You have filled my heart with more joy

than when grain and new wine abound.

8 I will lie down and sleep in peace,

for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.



2 a Or false gods
4 b Or In your anger do not sin or Tremble and do not sin ; cited in Ephesians 4:26
