Psalm 4 (KJV)

1  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 upon us.

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.
