1 By David, in his changing his behaviour before Abimelech, and he driveth him away, and he goeth. I do bless Jehovah at all times, Continually His praise [is] in my mouth. 1 I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
2 In Jehovah doth my soul boast herself, Hear do the humble and rejoice. 2 My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

7 A messenger of Jehovah is encamping, Round about those who fear Him, And He armeth them. 7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
8 Taste ye and see that Jehovah [is] good, O the happiness of the man who trusteth in Him. 8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
9 Fear Jehovah, ye His holy ones, For there is no lack to those fearing Him. 9 Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.

12 Who [is] the man that is desiring life? Loving days to see good? 12 Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,

14 Turn aside from evil and do good, Seek peace and pursue it. 14 Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
15 The eyes of Jehovah [are] unto the righteous, And His ears unto their cry. 15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry;
16 (The face of Jehovah [is] on doers of evil, To cut off from earth their memorial.) 16 the face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 They cried, and Jehovah heard, And from all their distresses delivered them. 17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 Near [is] Jehovah to the broken of heart, And the bruised of spirit He saveth. 18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

20 He is keeping all his bones, One of them hath not been broken. 20 he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.
21 Evil doth put to death the wicked, And those hating the righteous are desolate. 21 Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22 Jehovah redeemeth the soul of His servants, And none trusting in Him are desolate! 22 The LORD redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.
