Psalm 4

To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David.


1Give ear unto me when I call,

God of my righteousness:

Have mercy, hear my pray’r; thou hast

enlarg’d me in distress.

2O ye the sons of men! how long

will ye love vanities?

How long my glory turn to shame,

and will ye follow lies?

3But know, that for himself the Lord

the godly man doth chuse:

The Lord, when I on him do call,

to hear will not refuse.

4Fear, and sin not; talk with your heart

on bed, and silent be.

5Off ‘rings present of righteousness,

and in the Lord trust ye.

6O who will shew us any good?

is that which many say:

But of thy countenance the light,

Lord, lift on us alway.

7Upon my heart, bestow’d by thee,

more gladness I have found

Than they, ev’n then, when corn and wine

did most with them abound.

8I will both lay me down in peace,

and quiet sleep will take;

Because thou only me to dwell

in safety, Lord, dost make.
