The Lord, a Provider and Deliverer.

A Psalm of David when he feigned madness before Abimelech, who drove him away and he departed.

1 I will abless the Lord at all times;

His bpraise shall continually be in my mouth.

2 My soul will amake its boast in the Lord;

The bhumble will hear it and rejoice.

3 O amagnify the Lord with me,

And let us bexalt His name together.

4 I asought the Lord, and He answered me,

And bdelivered me from all my fears.

5 They alooked to Him and were radiant,

And their faces will bnever be ashamed.

6 This 1poor man cried, and athe Lord heard him

And saved him out of all his troubles.

7 The aangel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,

And rescues them.

8 O ataste and see that the Lord is good;

How bblessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!

9 O fear the Lord, you aHis saints;

For to those who fear Him there is bno want.

10 The young lions do lack and suffer hunger;

But they who seek the Lord shall anot be in want of any good thing.

11 aCome, you children, listen to me;

bI will teach you cthe fear of the Lord.

12 aWho is the man who desires life

And loves length of days that he may bsee good?

13 Keep ayour tongue from evil

And your lips from speaking bdeceit.

14 aDepart from evil and do good;

Seek peace and bpursue it.

15 The aeyes of the Lord are toward the righteous

And His ears are open to their cry.

16 The aface of the Lord is against evildoers,

To bcut off the memory of them from the earth.

17 The righteous acry, and the Lord hears

And delivers them out of all their troubles.

18 The Lord ais near to the bbrokenhearted

And saves those who are 1ccrushed in spirit.

19 aMany are the bafflictions of the righteous,

But the Lord cdelivers him out of them all.

20 He keeps all his bones,

aNot one of them is broken.

21 aEvil shall slay the wicked,

And those who hate the righteous will be 1condemned.

22 The Lord aredeems the soul of His servants,

And none of those who btake refuge in Him will be 1condemned.
