Psalms 34

The  Lord, a Provider and Deliverer.

A Psalm of David when he
Or changed his behavior
feigned madness before
Possibly a title of King Achish of Gath, see 1 Sam 21:10-15
Abimelech, who drove him away and he departed.

1 I will c  bless the  Lord at all times;
His d  praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2My soul will e  make its boast in the  Lord;
The f  humble will hear it and rejoice.
3O g  magnify the  Lord with me,
And let us h  exalt His name together.

4I i  sought the  Lord, and He answered me,
And j  delivered me from all my fears.
5They k  looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces will l  never be ashamed.
Or afflicted
poor man cried, and n  the  Lord heard him
And saved him out of all his troubles.
7The o  angel of the  Lord encamps around those who fear Him,
And rescues them.

8O p  taste and see that the  Lord is good;
How q  blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
9O fear the  Lord, you r  His saints;
For to those who fear Him there is s  no want.
10The young lions do lack and suffer hunger;
But they who seek the  Lord shall t  not be in want of any good thing.
11 u  Come, you children, listen to me;
v  I will teach you w  the fear of the  Lord.
12 x  Who is the man who desires life
And loves length of days that he may y  see good?
13Keep z  your tongue from evil
And your lips from speaking aa  deceit.
14 ab  Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and ac  pursue it.

15The ad  eyes of the  Lord are toward the righteous
And His ears are open to their cry.
16The ae  face of the  Lord is against evildoers,
To af  cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 The righteous ag  cry, and the  Lord hears
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
18The  Lord ah  is near to the ai  brokenhearted
And saves those who are
Or contrite
ak  crushed in spirit.

19 al  Many are the am  afflictions of the righteous,
But the  Lord an  delivers him out of them all.
20He keeps all his bones,
ao  Not one of them is broken.
21 ap  Evil shall slay the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous will be
Or held guilty
22The  Lord ar  redeems the soul of His servants,
And none of those who as  take refuge in Him will be
V 21, note 1
