Psalm 4

1Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!

         You have given me relief when I was | in distress.*

         Be gracious to me and | hear my prayer!

2O men, how long shall my honor be turned | into shame?*

         How long will you love vain words and seek | after lies?

3But know that the Lord has set apart the godly | for himself;*

         the Lord hears when I | call to him.

4Be angry, and | do not sin;*

         ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be | silent.

5Offer right sacri- | fices,*

         and put your trust | in the Lord.

6There are many who say, “Who will show | us some good?*

         Lift up the light of your face upon us, | O Lord!”

7You have put more joy | in my heart*

         than they have when their grain and | wine abound.

8In peace I will both lie | down and sleep;*

         for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in | safety.
