Day 1 — Psalm 4

Evening prayer

For the choirmaster, for strings, psalm of David.

God, guardian of my rights, You answer when I call,
when I am in trouble, You come to my relief;
now be good to me and hear my prayer.

You men,
why shut your hearts so long,
loving delusions, chasing after lies. Selah.

Know this, Yahweh works wonders for those He loves,
Yahweh hears me when I call to Him.

Tremble, give up sinning,
spend your night in quiet meditation. Selah.
Offer sacrifice in a right spirit, and trust Yahweh.

‘Who will give us sight of happiness?’ many say.
Show us the light of Your face, turned towards us!

Yahweh, You have given more joy to my heart
than others ever knew, for all their corn and wine.

In peace I lie down, and fall asleep at once,
since You alone, Yahweh, make me rest secure.

Next… Psalm 5
