Psalm 4 (WEBP)

[1] Answer me when I call, God of my righteousness. Give me relief from my distress. Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.
[2] You sons of men, how long shall my glory be turned into dishonor? Will you love vanity and seek after falsehood? Selah.
[3] But know that Yahweh has set apart for himself him who is godly; Yahweh will hear when I call to him.
[4] Stand in awe, and don’t sin. Search your own heart on your bed, and be still. Selah.
[5] Offer the sacrifices of righteousness. Put your trust in Yahweh.
[6] Many say, “Who will show us any good?” Yahweh, let the light of your face shine on us.
[7] You have put gladness in my heart, more than when their grain and their new wine are increased.
[8] In peace I will both lay myself down and sleep, for you alone, Yahweh, make me live in safety.

Psalm 4 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764) on Neginoth H5058, A Psalm H4210 of David H1732.» Hear H6030 (8798) me when I call H7121 (8800), O God H430 of my righteousness H6664: thou hast enlarged H7337 (8689) me [when I was] in distress H6862; have mercy H2603 (8798) upon me, and hear H8085 (8798) my prayer H8605.
[2] O ye sons H1121 of men H376, how long H5704 [will ye turn] my glory H3519 into shame H3639? [how long] will ye love H157 (8799) vanity H7385, [and] seek H1245 (8762) after leasing H3577? Selah H5542.
[3] But know H3045 (8798) that the LORD H3068 hath set apart H6395 (8689) him that is godly H2623 for himself: the LORD H3068 will hear H8085 (8799) when I call H7121 (8800) unto him.
[4] Stand in awe H7264 (8798), and sin H2398 (8799) not: commune H559 (8798) with your own heart H3824 upon your bed H4904, and be still H1826 (8798). Selah H5542.
[5] Offer H2076 (8798) the sacrifices H2077 of righteousness H6664, and put your trust H982 (8798) in the LORD H3068.
[6] [There be] many H7227 that say H559 (8802), Who will shew H7200 (8686) us [any] good H2896? LORD H3068, lift thou up H5375 (8798) the light H216 of thy countenance H6440 upon us.
[7] Thou hast put H5414 (8804) gladness H8057 in my heart H3820, more than in the time H6256 [that] their corn H1715 and their wine H8492 increased H7231 (8804).
[8] I will both H3162 lay me down H7901 (8799) in peace H7965, and sleep H3462 (8799): for thou, LORD H3068, only H910 makest me dwell H3427 (8686) in safety H983.
