A psalm of David, regarding the time he pretended to be insane in front of Abimelech, who sent him away. I will praise the LORD at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the LORD; let all who are discouraged take heart.
Come, let us tell of the LORD's greatness; let us exalt his name together.
I prayed to the LORD, and he answered me, freeing me from all my fears.
Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
I cried out to the LORD in my suffering, and he heard me. He set me free from all my fears.
For the angel of the LORD guards all who fear him, and he rescues them.
Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who trust in him!
Let the LORD's people show him reverence, for those who honor him will have all they need.
Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will never lack any good thing.
Come, my children, and listen to me, and I will teach you to fear the LORD.
