Today we look at Psalm 4 in our Saturdays in the Psalms series. What strikes you? What questions do you have? How does this challenge or comfort you? ~ Pastor Mark
Psalm 4 (New Living Translation)
For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by stringed instruments.
1 Answer me when I call to you, O God who declares me innocent. Free me from my troubles. Have mercy on me and hear my prayer. 2 How long will you people ruin my reputation? How long will you make groundless accusations? How long will you continue your lies? (Interlude)
3 You can be sure of this: The Lord set apart the godly for himself. The Lord will answer when I call to him.4 Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent. (Interlude)
5 Offer sacrifices in the right spirit, and trust the Lord. 6 Many people say, “Who will show us better times?” Let your face smile on us, Lord. 7 You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine. 8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.
