Psalm 4

Psalm 4  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 7
This Psalm gives us dependence on Jehovah, shown in calling upon Him, and thus the spirit in which the godly Jew is to walk, in the midst of Israel, when Messiah's glory is still despised. God has set apart the godly one for Himself—the gracious Lord first of all—the spiritual sense of the renewed sees it.
1. " O God of my righteousness!"
2. B'ney Ish (sons of men)—great and haughty ones of the earth.
3. Kha-sid (godly).
4-5. Are His directions as to the Spirit in which they are to walk.
7. He rejoices more in this position of faith, than when all outward blessings were showered on Israel.
This Psalm then is the supplicatory confidence of the beloved, i.e., of the Remnant in the face of the enemies, and in the midst of them, in God—thus principles of righteousness, even His righteousness; this point is material.
