Psalm 4

Psalm 4
Righteousness appealed to by the godly
Psalm 4 differs in this respect from Psalm 3, of which we shall see other examples, that it is not simple confidence, but appeals to righteousness against the sons of men, who turn all the glory that belongs to the people of Jehovah, and especially to their king, into shame; but Jehovah has chosen the godly. The light of Jehovah’s countenance is his resource. In Psalms 3:44I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah. (Psalm 3:4) and 4:1, the experienced mercy of Jehovah is referred to.
