By David, when he pretended to be insane before Abimelech, who drove him away. So David left.

Learning about God’s Deliverancea

b 1I will bless the LORD at all times;

his praise will be in my mouth continuously.

2My soul will glorify the LORD;

the humble will hear about it and rejoice.

3Magnify the LORD with me!

Let us lift up his name together!

4I sought the LORD and he answered me;

he delivered me from all of my fears.

5Look to him and be radiant;

and youc will not be ashamed.

6This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard

and delivered him from all of his distress.

7The angel of the LORD surrounds those who fear him,

and he delivers them.

8Taste and see that the LORD is good!

How blessed is the person who trusts in him!

9Fear the LORD, you holy ones of his;

for those who fear him lack nothing.

10Young lions lack and go hungry,

but those who seek the LORD will never lack any good thing.

11Come, children, listen to me,

and I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

12Who among youd desires life,

and wants long life in order to see good?

13Then keep your tongue from doing evil

and your lips from spreading lies.

14Avoid evil and do good!

Seek peace and pursue it!

15Thee LORD looks on the righteous,

and he listens to their cries.

16The face of the LORD is set against those who do evil,

and he will remove people’s recollection of them from the earth.

17The LORD hears those who cry out,

and he delivers them from all their distress.

18The LORD is close to the brokenhearted,

and he delivers those whose spirit has been crushed.

19A righteous person will have many troubles,

but the LORD will deliver him from them all.

20Godf protects all his bones;

not one of them will be broken.

21Evil will kill the wicked;

those who hate the righteous will be held guilty.

22The LORD redeems the lives of his servants;

and none of those who trust in him will be held guilty.
