Psalm 4

To the chief Musician on Neginoth.
A Psalm of David.

King James Version of the Bible
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.1

About Psalm 4

This Psalm seems to have been composed on the same occasion with the preceding, viz., Absalom's rebellion. It appears to have been an evening hymn, sung by David and his company previously to their going to rest.2

Title

To the chief Musician on Neginoth. A Psalm of David.
 

 

Division

I. David begins with a short prayer (v. 1) and that prayer preaches.
II. He directs his speech to the children of men, and,
1. In God's name reproves them for the dishonour they do to God and the damage they do to their own souls (v. 2).
2. He sets before them the happiness of godly people for their encouragement to be religious (v. 3).
3. He calls upon them to consider their ways (v. 4).
III. He exhorts them to serve God and trust in him (v. 5).
IV. He gives an account of his own experiences of the grace of God working in him,
1. Enabling him to choose God's favour for his felicity (v. 6).
2. Filling his heart with joy therein (v. 7).
3. Quieting his spirit in the assurance of the divine protection he was under, night and day (v. 8).3

 

 

An Evening Prayer

Psalm 4 has been termed An Evening Prayer and has been considered a sequel to Psalm 3. At eventide the psalmist reviews the troubles of the day, and is satisfied. A sense of sweet peace and tranquillity takes possession of him, for he realises that, as God has been his support in the hours of distress, He will keep him through the night. It has been suggested that Psalm 5 also should be read together with Psalm 4, for Psalm 4 is a prayer appropriate to evening devotions and Psalm 5 is a petition appropriate to the period of morning worship. The same tone appears to pervade both psalms.4
