Psalm 34

Psalm 34

The Happiness of Those Who Trust in God

A Psalm of David aWhen He Pretended Madness Before Abimelech, Who Drove Him Away, and He Departed.

1 I will bbless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;

The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,

And let us exalt His name together.

4 I csought the Lord, and He heard me,

And delivered me from all my fears.

5 They looked to Him and were radiant,

And their faces were not ashamed.

6 This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,

And saved him out of all his troubles.

7 dThe 1angel of the Lord eencamps all around those who fear Him,

And delivers them.

8 Oh, ftaste and see that the Lord is good;

gBlessed is the man who trusts in Him!

9 Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!

There is no 2want to those who fear Him.

10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;

hBut those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

11 Come, you children, listen to me;

iI will teach you the fear of the Lord.

12 jWho is the man who desires life,

And loves many days, that he may see good?

13 Keep your tongue from evil,

And your lips from speaking kdeceit.

14 lDepart from evil and do good;

mSeek peace and pursue it.

15 nThe eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,

And His ears are open to their cry.

16 oThe face of the Lord is against those who do evil,

pTo 3cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry out, and qthe Lord hears,

And delivers them out of all their troubles.

18 rThe Lord is near sto those who have a broken heart,

And saves such as 4have a contrite spirit.

19 tMany are the afflictions of the righteous,

uBut the Lord delivers him out of them all.

20 He guards all his bones;

vNot one of them is broken.

21 wEvil shall slay the wicked,

And those who hate the righteous shall be 5condemned.

22 The Lord xredeems the soul of His servants,

And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.
