Two Bible Verses Good For Sleep

“In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat- for he grants sleep to those he loves” psalm 127:2

“I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, o lord, make me dwell in safety” psalm 4:8

  1. I hate thinking that God doesn’t love me because I’m having trouble sleeping. Something just feels so wrong with that translation.

    look at this translation:

    Good News Translation (GNT)
    2 It is useless to work so hard for a living, getting up early and going to bed late. For the Lord provides for those he loves, while they are asleep.
