Daily Bible Nugget #674, Psalm 4:8

The Nugget:

Psa 4:8  I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. (KJV)

Psa 4:8  I fall asleep in peace the moment I lie down because you alone, O LORD, enable me to live securely. (GW, God’s Word translation)

Psa 4:8 I can lie down and sleep soundly because you, LORD, will keep me safe. (CEV, Contemporary English Version)

My Comment:

If you find it hard to go to sleep at night, try trusting in this Bible promise and testimony. Rather than counting sheep, count your blessings. While you are awake, pray for yourself and others. No need for sleep medicines!

  1. Hi Jerry,

    When you respond to my critique on baptism, please let me know:

    I am not getting notifications for comments here, and so have to keep checking back, which gets tedious.

    God bless!

    Dear Dave,

    I appreciate your gracious patience! I have been furthering my studies to be better prepared in three different areas: questions asked by Muslims, questions and challenges posed by atheists, and yes, the baptism question! I hope to write a new post pertaining to baptism very shortly.
