Taste and see that the LORD is good;1 blessed is the man who takes refuge2 in him.
Fear the LORD,3 you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.410
The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.511
Come, my children, listen6 to me; I will teach you7 the fear of the LORD.812
Whoever of you loves life9 and desires to see many good days,
keep your tongue10 from evil and your lips from speaking lies.1114
Turn from evil and do good;12 seek peace13 and pursue it.
The eyes of the LORD 14 are on the righteous15 and his ears are attentive16 to their cry;
the face of the LORD is against17 those who do evil,18 to cut off the memory19 of them from the earth.
The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears20 them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
The LORD is close21 to the brokenhearted22 and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
