Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 By David, when he pretended to be insane before Avimelekh, who then drove him away; so he left: I will bless ADONAI at all times; his praise will always be in my mouth. 1 I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
2 When I boast, it will be about ADONAI; the humble will hear of it and be glad. 2 My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Proclaim with me the greatness of ADONAI; let us exalt his name together. 3 Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought ADONAI, and he answered me; he rescued me from everything I feared. 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked to him and grew radiant; their faces will never blush for shame. 5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man cried; ADONAI heard and saved him from all his troubles. 6 This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of ADONAI, who encamps around those who fear him, delivers them. 7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
8 Taste, and see that ADONAI is good. How blessed are those who take refuge in him! 8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
9 Fear ADONAI, you holy ones of his, for those who fear him lack nothing. 9 Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.
10 Young lions can be needy, they can go hungry, but those who seek ADONAI lack nothing good. 10 The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
11 Come, children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of ADONAI. 11 Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12 Which of you takes pleasure in living? Who wants a long life to see good things? 12 Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,
13 [If you do,] keep your tongue from evil and your lips from deceiving talk; 13 keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
14 turn from evil, and do good; seek peace, go after it! 14 Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
15 The eyes of ADONAI watch over the righteous, and his ears are open to their cry. 15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry;
16 But the face of ADONAI opposes those who do evil, to cut off all memory of them from the earth. 16 the face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 [The righteous] cried out, and ADONAI heard, and he saved them from all their troubles. 17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 ADONAI is near those with broken hearts; he saves those whose spirit is crushed. 18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
19 The righteous person suffers many evils, but ADONAI rescues him out of them all. 19 A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all;
20 He protects all his bones; not one of them gets broken. 20 he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.
21 Evil will kill the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned. 21 Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22 But ADONAI redeems his servants; no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned. 22 The LORD redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.
