Psalm 4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Evening Prayer of Trust in God.

[a]For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

Answer me when I call, O God [b]of my righteousness!
You have [c]relieved me in my distress;
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.

O sons of men, how long will my [d]honor become a reproach?
How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? [e]Selah.
But know that the Lord has [f]set apart the godly man for Himself;
The Lord hears when I call to Him.

[g]Tremble, [h]and do not sin;
[i]Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
Offer [j]the sacrifices of righteousness,
And trust in the Lord.

Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?”
Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord!
You have put gladness in my heart,
More than when their grain and new wine abound.
In peace I will [k]both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.
