Psalm 4

Psalm 4

For the director of music. A psalm of David to be played on stringed instruments.

My faithful God,
    answer me when I call out to you.
Give me rest from my trouble.
    Have mercy on me. Hear my prayer.

How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
    How long will you love what will certainly fail you?
    How long will you pray to statues of gods?
Remember that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself.
    The Lord hears me when I call out to him.

Tremble and do not sin.
    When you are in bed,
    look deep down inside yourself and be silent.
Offer to the Lord the sacrifices that godly people offer.
    Trust in him.

Lord, many are asking, “Who will make us successful?”
    Lord, may you do good things for us.
Fill my heart with joy
    when the people have lots of grain and fresh wine.
In peace I will lie down and sleep.
    Lord, you alone keep me safe.

詩篇 4

求助的晚禱

大衛的詩,交給樂長,弦樂器伴奏。

1稱我為義人的上帝啊!
我呼求的時候,求你回答。
你曾救我脫離困境,
現在求你憐憫我,
垂聽我的禱告。
世人啊!你們把我的榮耀變為羞辱要到何時呢?
你們追求虛謊之事要到何時呢?(細拉)
要知道,耶和華已經把敬虔人分別出來,使之聖潔,歸祂自己。
祂必垂聽我的祈求。
不要因生氣而犯罪;
躺在床上的時候要默然思想。(細拉)
要獻上當獻的祭物,
信靠耶和華。
許多人說:「誰會善待我們呢?」
耶和華啊,
求你的聖容光照我們。
你使我比那收穫五穀新酒的人更喜樂。
只有你耶和華使我安然居住,
我必高枕無憂。
