O taste and see that the LORD is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!
O fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no want!
The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
Come, O sons, listen to me, I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
What man is there who desires life, and covets many days, that he may enjoy good?
Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit.
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
