Psalm 4

(To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David.)

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.

Comment:
Can one say more than Psalm 4 verse 4? It covers completely man spirituality and
what "we" need to do to obey and get close to God.
