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.
7 l The angel of the Lord m encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.
8 Oh, n taste and see that o the Lord is good!
p Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
9Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
10 q The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who r seek the Lord lack no good thing.
11 s Come, O children, listen to me;
t I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 u What man is there who desires life
and loves many days, that he may v see good?
13 w Keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from x speaking deceit.
14 y Turn away from evil and do good;
seek peace and z pursue it.
15 aa The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
ab and his ears toward their cry.
16 ac The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
to ad cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 ae When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
and delivers them out of all their troubles.
18The Lord is near to af the brokenhearted
and saves ag the crushed in spirit.
19 ah Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
ai but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20He keeps all his bones;
aj not one of them is broken.
21 ak Affliction will slay the wicked,
and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22The Lord al redeems the life of his servants;
none of those who take refuge in him will be am condemned.
