Psalm 34
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1BY DAVID, IN HIS CHANGING HIS BEHAVIOR BEFORE ABIMELECH, AND HE DRIVES HIM AWAY, AND HE GOES. [ALEPH-BET] I bless YHWH at all times, || His praise [is] continually in my mouth.

2In YHWH my soul boasts herself, || The humble hear and rejoice.

3Ascribe greatness to YHWH with me, || And we exalt His Name together.

4I sought YHWH, and He answered me, || And delivered me from all my fears.

5They looked expectingly to Him, || And they became bright, || And their faces are not ashamed.

6This poor [one] called, and YHWH heard, || And saved him from all his distresses.

7A messenger of YHWH is encamping, || Around those who fear Him, || And He arms them.

8Taste and see that YHWH [is] good, || O the blessedness of the man who trusts in Him.

9Fear YHWH, you His holy ones, || For there is no lack to those fearing Him.

10Young lions have lacked and been hungry, || And those seeking YHWH do not lack any good,

11Come, children, listen to me, || I teach you the fear of YHWH.

12Who [is] the man that is desiring life? Loving days to see good?

13Keep your tongue from evil, || And your lips from speaking deceit.

14Turn aside from evil and do good, || Seek peace and pursue it.

15The eyes of YHWH [are] to the righteous, || And His ears to their cry.

16(The face of YHWH [is] on doers of evil, || To cut off their memorial from earth.)

17They cried, and YHWH heard, || And delivered them from all their distresses.

18YHWH [is] near to the broken of heart, || And He saves the bruised of spirit.

19Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous, || YHWH delivers him out of them all.

20He is keeping all his bones, || Not one of them has been broken.

21Evil puts the wicked to death, || And those hating the righteous are desolate.

22YHWH redeems the soul of His servants, || And none trusting in Him are desolate!
