Psalms 34:1-6

Taste and See That the  Lord Is Good

This psalm is an acrostic poem, each verse beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet
Of David, when he b  changed his behavior before c  Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.

1 I will bless the  Lord d  at all times;
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2My soul e  makes its boast in the  Lord;
let the humble hear and f  be glad.
3Oh, g  magnify the  Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together!
4 I h  sought the  Lord, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
5Those who look to him are i  radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
6 j  This poor man cried, and the  Lord heard him
and k  saved him out of all his troubles.

Psalms 35:27

27 Let those who delight in my righteousness
shout for joy and be glad
l  and say evermore,
m  Great is the  Lord,
who n  delights in the welfare of his servant!”

Psalms 52:6

6The righteous shall o  see and fear,
and shall p  laugh at him, saying,

Psalms 64:9-10

9Then all mankind q  fears;
they r  tell what God has brought about
and ponder what he has done.
10 Let s  the righteous one rejoice in the  Lord
and t  take refuge in him!
Let all u  the upright in heart exult!

Psalms 142:7

7 v  Bring me out of prison,
that I may give thanks to your name!
The righteous will surround me,
for you will w  deal bountifully with me.

Hosea 3:5

5Afterward x  the children of Israel shall return and y  seek the  Lord their God, and z  David their king aa  and they shall come in fear to the  Lord and to his goodness in the ab  latter days.

Acts 2:31-41

31he foresaw and spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, that ac  he was not abandoned to Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. 32This Jesus ad  God raised up ae  and of that we all are witnesses. 33 af  Being therefore ag  exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from ah  the Father ai  the promise of the Holy Spirit aj  he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing. 34For ak  David did not ascend into the heavens, but he himself says,

al  “‘The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at my right hand,
35until I make your enemies your footstool.”’

36Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that am  God has made him an  both Lord and Christ, this Jesus ao  whom you crucified.”

37Now when ap  they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers aq  what shall we do?” 38And Peter said to them ar  Repent and as  be baptized every one of you at  in the name of Jesus Christ au  for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive av  the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39For aw  the promise is for you and ax  for your children and for all ay  who are far off, everyone az  whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying ba  Save yourselves from this bb  crooked generation.” 41So those who received his word were baptized, and bc  there were added that day about three thousand souls.

Acts 4:4

4But many of those who had heard the word believed, and bd  the number of the men came to about five thousand.
