Psalms 4

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by stringed instruments.
 1  "Answer me when I call to you, O God who declares me innocent. Free me from my troubles. Have mercy on me and hear my prayer."  2  How long will you people ruin my reputation?
  How long will you make groundless accusations?
  How long will you continue your lies?    Interlude
 3  You can be sure of this:
  The LORD set apart the godly for himself.
  The LORD will answer when I call to him.

 4  Don't sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent.  5  Offer sacrifices in the right spirit,
  and trust the LORD.

 6  Many people say, "Who will show us better times?"
  Let your face smile on us, LORD.
 7  You have given me greater joy
  than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.
 8  In peace I will lie down and sleep,
  for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe.
