Writings:Psalms 4 “In peace will I both lay me down and sleep”

Psalms Chapter 4

1 For the Leader; with string-music. A Psalm of David.

2 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness, Thou who didst set me free when I was in distress; be gracious unto me, and hear my prayer.
3 O ye sons of men, how long shall my glory be put to shame, in that ye love vanity, and seek after falsehood?

Selah

4 But know that the LORD hath set apart the godly man as His own; the LORD will hear when I call unto Him.
5 Tremble, and sin not; commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.

Selah

6 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
7 Many there are that say:
‘Oh that we could see some good!’
LORD, lift Thou up the light of Thy countenance upon us.
8 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than when their corn and their wine increase.
9 In peace will I both lay me down and sleep; for Thou, LORD, makest me dwell alone in safety. {P}
