I sought the LORD,1 and he answered me; he delivered2 me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;3 their faces are never covered with shame.46
This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.57
The angel of the LORD6 encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers7 them.
Taste and see that the LORD is good;8 blessed is the man who takes refuge9 in him.
Fear the LORD,10 you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.1110
The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.1211
Come, my children, listen13 to me; I will teach you14 the fear of the LORD.1512
Whoever of you loves life16 and desires to see many good days,
keep your tongue17 from evil and your lips from speaking lies.1814
Turn from evil and do good;19 seek peace20 and pursue it.
The eyes of the LORD21 are on the righteous22 and his ears are attentive23 to their cry;
the face of the LORD is against24 those who do evil,25 to cut off the memory26 of them from the earth.
The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears27 them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
The LORD is close28 to the brokenhearted29 and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
