Psalms 34


A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.

I will bless the  Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Abimelech: or, Achish
My soul shall make her boast in the  Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the  Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the  Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
were lightened: or, they flowed unto him
This poor man cried, and the  Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the  Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the  Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the  Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. 10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the  Lord shall not want any good thing. 11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the  Lord. 12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. 14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 15 The eyes of the  Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. 16 The face of the  Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. 17 The righteous cry, and the  Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 The  Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
unto…: Heb. to the broken of heart
of a contrite…: Heb. contrite of spirit
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the  Lord delivereth him out of them all. 20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. 21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
desolate: or, guilty
22 The  Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
desolate: or, guilty
