keep your tongue1 from evil and your lips from speaking lies.214
Turn from evil and do good;3 seek peace4 and pursue it.
The eyes of the LORD 5 are on the righteous6 and his ears are attentive7 to their cry;
the face of the LORD is against8 those who do evil,9 to cut off the memory10 of them from the earth.
The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears11 them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
The LORD is close12 to the brokenhearted13 and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
A righteous man may have many troubles,14 but the LORD delivers him from them all;1520
he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.1621
Evil will slay the wicked;17 the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
The LORD redeems18 his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge19 in him.
