Psalms 34

By David; when he pretended to be insane before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.


I will bless the  Lord at all times.
His praise will always be in my mouth.
2My soul shall boast in the  Lord.
The humble shall hear of it, and be glad.
3Oh magnify the  Lord with me.
Let us exalt his name together.
4I sought the  Lord, and he answered me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
5They looked to him, and were radiant.
Their faces shall never be covered with shame.
6This poor man cried, and the  Lord heard him,
and saved him out of all his troubles.
7The angel of the  Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and delivers them.
8Oh taste and see that the  Lord is good.
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
9Oh fear the  Lord, you his holy ones,
for there is no lack with those who fear him.
10The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger,
but those who seek the  Lord shall not lack any good thing.
11Come, you children, listen to me.
I will teach you the fear of the  Lord.
12Who is someone who desires life,
and loves many days, that he may see good?
13Keep your tongue from evil,
and your lips from speaking lies.
14Depart from evil, and do good.
Seek peace, and pursue it.
15The  Lord's eyes are toward the righteous.
His ears listen to their cry.
16The  Lord's face is against those who do evil,
34:12-16 1Peter 3:10-12

to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17They cried, and the  Lord hears,
and delivers them out of all their troubles.
18The  Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
and saves those who have a crushed spirit.
19Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the  Lord delivers him out of them all.
20He protects all of his bones.
Not one of them is broken.
John 19:36

21Evil shall kill the wicked.
Those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.
22The  Lord redeems the soul of his servants.
None of those who take refuge in him shall be condemned.
