|Answer me when I call to you, |
O my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
be merciful to me and hear my prayer.
|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. |
|Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! |
You have relieved me in my distress;
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.
|Psalm 4:1 |

David wrote this psalm as he was about to retire for the night (v. 8). He could not do much about the war around him, but he could do something about the war within him. He did not want to lie in bed and worry, so he committed himself and his situation to the Lord.
