The Meaning of Psalms 4 Explained

Psalms 4

[1] [[To the chief Musician  on Neginoth,  A Psalm  of David.]]  Hear  me when I call,  O God  of my righteousness:  thou hast enlarged  me when I was in distress;  have mercy  upon me, and hear  my prayer.  [2] O ye sons  of men,  how long  will ye turn my glory  into shame?  how long will ye love  vanity,  and seek  after leasing?  Selah.  [3] But know  that the LORD  hath set apart  him that is godly  for himself: the LORD  will hear  when I call  unto him. [4] Stand in awe,  and sin  not: commune  with your own heart  upon your bed,  and be still.  Selah.  [5] Offer  the sacrifices  of righteousness,  and put your trust  in the LORD.  [6] There be many  that say,  Who will shew  us any good?  LORD,  lift thou up  the light  of thy countenance  [7] Thou hast put  gladness  in my heart,  more than in the time  that their corn  and their wine  increased.  [8] I will both  lay me down  in peace,  and sleep:  for thou, LORD,  only  makest me dwell  in safety.
