Psalm 34
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1BY DAVID, IN HIS CHANGING HIS BEHAVIOR BEFORE ABIMELECH, AND HE DRIVES HIM AWAY, AND HE GOES. [ALEPH-BET] I bless YHWH at all times, "" His praise [is] continually in my mouth.

2In YHWH my soul boasts herself, "" The humble hear and rejoice.

3Ascribe greatness to YHWH with me, "" And we exalt His Name together.

4I sought YHWH, and He answered me, "" And delivered me from all my fears.

5They looked expectingly to Him, "" And they became bright, "" And their faces are not ashamed.

6This poor [one] called, and YHWH heard, "" And saved him from all his distresses.

7A messenger of YHWH is encamping, "" Around those who fear Him, "" And He arms them.

8Taste and see that YHWH [is] good, "" O the blessedness of the man who trusts in Him.

9Fear YHWH, you His holy ones, "" For there is no lack to those fearing Him.

10Young lions have lacked and been hungry, "" And those seeking YHWH do not lack any good,

11Come, children, listen to me, "" I teach you the fear of YHWH.

12Who [is] the man that is desiring life? Loving days to see good?

13Keep your tongue from evil, "" And your lips from speaking deceit.

14Turn aside from evil and do good, "" Seek peace and pursue it.

15The eyes of YHWH [are] to the righteous, "" And His ears to their cry.

16(The face of YHWH [is] on doers of evil, "" To cut off their memorial from earth.)

17They cried, and YHWH heard, "" And delivered them from all their distresses.

18YHWH [is] near to the broken of heart, "" And He saves the bruised of spirit.

19Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous, "" YHWH delivers him out of them all.

20He is keeping all his bones, "" Not one of them has been broken.

21Evil puts the wicked to death, "" And those hating the righteous are desolate.

22YHWH redeems the soul of His servants, "" And none trusting in Him are desolate!
