Psalm 34

The LORD, a Provider and Deliverer.

A Psalm of David when he feigned madness before Abimelech, who drove him away and he departed.

1 I will 1bless the LORD at all times; His 2praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul will 3make its boast in the LORD; The 4humble will hear it and rejoice.
3 O 5magnify the LORD with me, And let us 6exalt His name together.
4 I 7sought the LORD, and He answered me, And 8delivered me from all my fears.
5 They 9looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces will 10never be ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and 11the LORD heard him And saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The 12angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, And rescues them.
8 O 13taste and see that the LORD is good; How 14blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
9 O fear the LORD, you 15His saints; For to those who fear Him there is 16no want.
10 The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the LORD shall 17not be in want of any good thing.
11 18Come, you children, listen to me; 19I will teach you 20the fear of the LORD.
12 21Who is the man who desires life And loves length of days that he may 22see good?
13 Keep 23your tongue from evil And your lips from speaking 24deceit.
14 25Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and 26pursue it.
15 The 27eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous And His ears are open to their cry.
16 The 28face of the LORD is against evildoers, To 29cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 The righteous 30cry, and the LORD hears And delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The LORD 31is near to the 32brokenhearted * And saves those who are 33crushed in spirit.
19 34Many are the 35afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD 36delivers him out of them all.
20 He keeps all his bones, 37Not one of them is broken.
21 38Evil shall slay the wicked, And those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22 The LORD 39redeems the soul of His servants, And none * of those who 40take refuge in Him will be condemned.
