The Book of Psalms

Psalm 4

Cum invocarem.

The prophet teacheth us to flee to God in tribulation, with confidence in him.


1
Unto the end, in verses. A psalm for David.

2
When I called upon him, the God of my justice heard me: when I was in distress, thou hast enlarged me. Have mercy on me: and hear my prayer.

3
O ye sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart? why do you love vanity, and seek after lying?

4
Know ye also that the Lord hath made his holy one wonderful: the Lord will hear me when I shall cry unto him.

5
Be ye angry, and sin not: the things you say in your hearts, be sorry for them upon your beds.

6
Offer up the sacrifice of justice, and trust in the Lord: many say, Who sheweth us good things?

7
The light of thy countenance, O Lord, is signed upon us: thou hast given gladness in my heart.

8
By the fruit of their corn, their wine, and oil, they rest:

9
In peace in the self same I will sleep, and I will rest:

10
For thou, O Lord, singularly hast settled me in hope.
