Psalm 34

Taste and See That the Lord Is Good

Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.

1 I will bless the LORD 1at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul 2makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and 3be glad.
3 Oh, 4magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!
4 I 5sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are 6radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.
6 7This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and 8saved him out of all his troubles.
7 9The angel of the LORD 10 encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.
8 Oh, 11taste and see that 12the LORD is good! 13Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
9 Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack!
10 14The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who 15seek the LORD lack no good thing.
11 16Come, O children, listen to me; 17I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12 18What man is there who desires life and loves many days, that he may 19see good?
13 20Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from 21speaking deceit.
14 22Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and 23pursue it.
15 24The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous 25and his ears toward their cry.
16 26The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to 27cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 28When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The LORD is near to 29the brokenhearted and saves 30the crushed in spirit.
19 31Many are the afflictions of the righteous, 32but the LORD delivers him out of them all.
20 He keeps all his bones; 33not one of them is broken.
21 34Affliction will slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22 The LORD 35 redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be 36condemned.
