Psalm 4

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David.

1 Answer me when I call to you,
   my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
   have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
   How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
3 Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;
   the Lord hears when I call to him.
4 Tremble and do not sin;
   when you are on your beds,
   search your hearts and be silent.
5 Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
   and trust in the Lord.
6 Many, Lord, are asking, ‘Who will bring us prosperity?’
   Let the light of your face shine on us.
7 Fill my heart with joy
   when their grain and new wine abound.
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
   for you alone, Lord,
   make me dwell in safety.

Lord when doubts set in about Jesus or your goodness, may I know (v3) that you have set Jesus apart and that you do answer prayer. Amen.
