Translation

without cause: you have broken the sinners’ teeth./ salvation is the lord’s: and your blessing upon your people./


Psalm 4
When I called upon him

WHEN I CALLED/ the god of my justice/ heard me: in/ distress you en/larged to me./ Have mercy on me: and/ hear my prayer. You sons of men/ how long are you of heavy heart: why do you love vanity and seek after lying./ And know that the lord made his holy one wonderful:/ the lord will hear me when I shall cry to him./ Be angry and do not sin: the things that you say/ in your hearts in your beds be remorse/ful for them./
Offer up the sacrifice of justice and hope/ in the lord: many say who showed/
