Psalm 4: For Thou, Lord, Only Makest Me Dwell In Safety - Poem by King David of Israel

1 Hear me when I call,
O God of my righteousness:
thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress;
have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

2 O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?
how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.

3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself:
the LORD will hear when I call unto him.

4 Stand in awe, and sin not:
commune with your own heart upon your bed,
and be still. Selah.

5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
and put your trust in the LORD.

6 There be many that say, Who will shew us any good?
LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.

7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart,
more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.

8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep:
for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

(KJV)
