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.

الْمَزْمُورُ الرَّابِعُ

لِقَائِدِ الْمُنْشِدِينَ عَلَى الآلاَتِ الْوَتَرِيَّةِ.

مَزْمُورٌ لِدَاوُدَ

اسْتَجِبْ لِي عِنْدَمَا أَدْعُوكَ يَا إِلَهَ بِرِّي، فَقَدْ أَفْرَجْتَ لِي دَوْماً فِي الضِّيقِ، فَأَنْعِمْ عَلَيَّ وَأَصْغِ إِلَى صَلاَتِي. إِلَى مَتَى يَا بَنِي الْبَشَرِ تُحَوِّلُونَ مَجْدِي عَاراً؟ وَإِلَى مَتَى تُحِبُّونَ الأُمُورَ البَاطِلَةَ، وَتَسْعَوْنَ وَرَاءَ الأَكَاذِيبِ؟ اعْلَمُوا أَنَّ الرَّبَّ قَدْ مَيَّزَ لِنَفْسِهِ تَقِيَّهُ؛ الرَّبُّ يَسْمَعُ عِنْدَمَا أَدْعُوهُ. ارْتَعِدُوا وَلَا تُخْطِئُوا. فَكِّرُوا فِي قُلُوبِكُمْ عَلَى مَضَاجِعِكُمْ مُلْتَزِمِين الصَّمْتَ. قَدِّمُوا ذَبَائِحَ الْبِرِّ، وَاتَّكِلُوا عَلَى الرَّبِّ. مَا أَكْثَرَ الْمُتَسَائِلِينَ: «مَنْ يُرِينَا خَيْراً؟» أَشْرِقْ عَلَيْنَا أَيُّهَا الرَّبُّ بِنُورِ وَجْهِكَ. غَرَسْتَ فِي قَلْبِي فَرَحاً أَعْظَمَ مِنْ فَرَحِ مَنِ امْتَلَأَتْ بُيُوتُهُمْ وَأَجْرَانُهُمْ بِالْحِنْطَةِ وَالْخَمْرِ الْجَدِيدَةِ. بِسَلاَمٍ أَضْطَجِعُ وَأَنَامُ، لأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ وَحْدَكَ يَا رَبُّ تُنْعِمُ عَلَيَّ بِالطُّمَأْنِينَةِ وَالسَّلاَمِ.
