Amplified Bible

Psalm 4

Evening Prayer of Trust in God.

To the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have freed me when I was hemmed in and relieved me when I was in distress;
Be gracious to me and hear [and respond to] my prayer.


O sons of men, how long will my honor and glory be [turned into] shame?
How long will you [my enemies] love worthless (vain, futile) things and seek deception and lies? Selah.

But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself [and dealt wonderfully with] the godly man [the one of honorable character and moral courage—the one who does right].
The Lord hears and responds when I call to Him.


Tremble [with anger or fear], and do not sin;
Meditate in your heart upon your bed and be still [reflect on your sin and repent of your rebellion]. Selah.

Offer righteous sacrifices;
Trust [confidently] in the Lord.


Many are saying, “Oh, that we might see some good!”
Lift up the light of Your face upon us, O Lord.

You have put joy in my heart,
More than [others know] when their wheat and new wine have yielded abundantly.

In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust.

诗篇 4

求助的晚祷

大卫的诗,交给乐长,弦乐器伴奏。

1称我为义人的上帝啊!
我呼求的时候,求你回答。
你曾救我脱离困境,
现在求你怜悯我,
垂听我的祷告。
世人啊!你们把我的荣耀变为羞辱要到何时呢?
你们追求虚谎之事要到何时呢?(细拉)
要知道,耶和华已经把敬虔人分别出来,使之圣洁,归祂自己。
祂必垂听我的祈求。
不要因生气而犯罪;
躺在床上的时候要默然思想。(细拉)
要献上当献的祭物,
信靠耶和华。
许多人说:“谁会善待我们呢?”
耶和华啊,
求你的圣容光照我们。
你使我比那收获五谷新酒的人更喜乐。
只有你耶和华使我安然居住,
我必高枕无忧。
