Tehillim 4 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

(For the one directing. With stringed instruments. Mizmor Dovid.) Hear me when I call, Elohei tzidki (O G-d of my righteousness); Thou hast relieved me when I was in distress; channeini, and hear my tefillah.

O ye Bnei Ish, how long will ye turn my kavod into shame? How long will ye love delusion, and seek kazav (lie, falsehood)? Selah.

But know that Hashem hath set apart the chasid for Himself; Hashem will hear when I call unto Him.

Be angry, yet sin not; commune with your own levav upon your mishkav, and be still. Selah.

Offer the zivkhei-tzedek, and put your trust in Hashem.

There be many that say, Who will show us any tov? Hashem, lift Thou up the ohr of Thy countenance upon us.

Thou hast put simcha in my lev, more than in the time that their dagan and their tirosh increased.

In shalom I will both lay me down, and sleep, for Thou alone, Hashem, makest me dwell in safety.

Psalm 4 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 4[a]

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David.

Answer me when I call to you,
    my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
    have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
    How long will you love delusions and seek false gods[b]?[c]
Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;
    the Lord hears when I call to him.

Tremble and[d] do not sin;
    when you are on your beds,
    search your hearts and be silent.
Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
    and trust in the Lord.

Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”
    Let the light of your face shine on us.
Fill my heart with joy
    when their grain and new wine abound.

In peace I will lie down and sleep,
    for you alone, Lord,
    make me dwell in safety.
