The angel of the LORD 1 encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers2 them.
Taste and see that the LORD is good;3 blessed is the man who takes refuge4 in him.
Fear the LORD,5 you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.610
The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.711
Come, my children, listen8 to me; I will teach you9 the fear of the LORD.1012
Whoever of you loves life11 and desires to see many good days,
keep your tongue12 from evil and your lips from speaking lies.1314
Turn from evil and do good;14 seek peace15 and pursue it.
The eyes of the LORD 16 are on the righteous17 and his ears are attentive18 to their cry;
the face of the LORD is against19 those who do evil,20 to cut off the memory21 of them from the earth.
The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears22 them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
