3 Glorify the Lord with me, and let us praise his name together. 3 Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together.
4 I asked the Lord for help, and he answered me. He saved me from all that I feared. 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who go to him for help are happy, and they are never disgraced. 5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him 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 the Lord camps around those who fear God, and he saves them. 7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
8 Examine and see how good the Lord is. Happy is the person who trusts him. 8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
9 You who belong to the Lord, fear him! Those who fear him will have everything they need. 9 Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.
10 Even lions may get weak and hungry, but those who look to the Lord will have every good thing. 10 The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
11 Children, come and listen to me. I will teach you to worship the Lord. 11 Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12 You must do these things to enjoy life and have many happy days. 12 Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,
13 You must not say evil things, and you must not tell lies. 13 keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
14 Stop doing evil and do good. Look for peace and work for it. 14 Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
15 The Lord sees the good people and listens to their prayers. 15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry;
16 But the Lord is against those who do evil; he makes the world forget them. 16 the face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 The Lord hears good people when they cry out to him, and he saves them from all their troubles. 17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, and he saves those whose spirits have been crushed. 18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
19 People who do what is right may have many problems, but the Lord will solve them all. 19 A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all;
20 He will protect their very bones; not one of them will be broken. 20 he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.
21 Evil will kill the wicked; those who hate good people will be judged guilty. 21 Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22 But the Lord saves his servants' lives; no one who trusts him will be judged guilty. Of David. 22 The LORD redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.
