Tehillim Series | Psalm Four

1 To the conductor with melodies, a song of David.
אלַמְנַצֵּ֥חַ בִּנְגִינ֗וֹת מִזְמ֥וֹר לְדָוִֽד:
2 When I call, answer me, O God of my righteousness; in my distress You have relieved me, be gracious to me and hearken to my prayer.
בבְּקָרְאִ֡י עֲנֵ֚נִי | אֱלֹ֘הֵ֚י צִדְקִ֗י בַּ֖צָּר הִרְחַ֣בְתָּ לִּ֑י חָ֜נֵּ֗נִי וּשְׁמַ֥ע תְּפִלָּתִֽי:
3 Sons of man, how long will my honor be disgraced? [How long] will you love futility? [How long] will you constantly seek lies?
גבְּנֵי־אִ֡ישׁ עַד־מֶ֤ה כְבוֹדִ֗י לִ֖כְלִמָּה תֶּֽאֱהָב֣וּן רִ֑יק תְּבַקְשׁ֖וּ כָזָ֣ב סֶֽלָה:
4 You shall know that the Lord has set apart the pious man for Himself; the Lord shall hear when I call out to Him.
דוּדְע֗וּ כִּֽי־הִפְלָ֣ה יְ֖הֹוָה חָסִ֣יד ל֑וֹ יְהֹ֘וָ֥ה יִ֜שְׁמַ֗ע בְּקָרְאִ֥י אֵלָֽיו:
5 Quake and do not sin; say [this] in your heart on your bed and be forever silent. הרִגְז֗וּ וְֽאַל־תֶּֽ֫חֱטָ֥אוּ אִמְר֣וּ בִ֖לְבַבְכֶם עַל־מִשְׁכַּבְכֶ֗ם וְדֹ֣מּוּ סֶֽלָה:
6 Offer up sacrifices of righteousness and trust in the Lord.
וזִבְח֥וּ זִבְחֵי־צֶ֑דֶק וּ֜בִטְח֗וּ אֶל־יְהֹוָֽה:
7 Many say, “Who will show us goodness?” Raise up over us the light of Your countenance, O Lord.
זרַבִּ֥ים אֹֽמְרִים֘ מִֽי־יַרְאֵ֪נוּ֫ ט֥וֹב נְסָה־עָלֵ֑ינוּ א֖וֹר פָּנֶ֣יךָ יְהֹוָֽה:
8You gave joy into my heart from the time that their corn and their wine increased.
חנָתַ֣תָּה שִׂמְחָ֣ה בְלִבִּ֑י מֵעֵ֨ת דְּגָנָ֖ם וְתִֽירוֹשָׁ֣ם רָֽבּוּ:
9 In peace together, I would lie down and sleep, for You, O Lord, would make me dwell alone in safety.
טבְּשָׁל֣וֹם יַחְדָּו֘ אֶשְׁכְּבָ֪ה וְאִ֫ישָׁ֥ן כִּֽי־אַתָּ֣ה יְהֹוָ֣ה לְבָדָ֪ד לָ֜בֶ֗טַח תּֽוֹשִׁיבֵֽנִי:
