Of David, when he disguised his sanity+ before A·bimʹe·lech, who drove him away, and he left.
34 I will praise Jehovah at all times;
His praise will be on my lips constantly.
2 I* will boast in Jehovah;+
The meek will hear and rejoice.
3 Magnify Jehovah along with me;+
Let us exalt his name together.
4 I inquired of Jehovah, and he answered me.+
He rescued me from all my fears.+
5 Those who looked to him became radiant;
Their faces could not be put to shame.
6 This lowly one called, and Jehovah heard.
He saved him from all his distresses.+
7 The angel of Jehovah camps all around those fearing Him,+
And he rescues them.+
8 Taste and see that Jehovah is good;+
Happy is the man who takes refuge in him.
9 Fear Jehovah, all you his holy ones,
For those who fear him lack nothing.+
10 Even strong young lions* have been reduced to hunger,
But those seeking Jehovah will lack nothing good.+
11 Come, my sons, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of Jehovah.+
12 Who among you takes pleasure in life
And would love to see many good days?+
13 Then guard your tongue from what is bad,+
Your lips from speaking deception.+
14 Turn away from what is bad and do what is good;+
Seek peace and pursue it.+
15 The eyes of Jehovah are on the righteous,+
And his ears listen to their cry for help.+
16 But the face of Jehovah is against those doing what is bad,
To erase all memory of them from the earth.+
17 They cried out, and Jehovah heard;+
He rescued them from all their distresses.+
18 Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted;+
He saves those who are crushed in spirit.*+
19 Many are the hardships* of the righteous one,+
But Jehovah rescues him from them all.+
20 He is guarding all his bones;
Not one of them has been broken.+
21 Disaster will put the wicked to death;
Those hating the righteous will be found guilty.
22 Jehovah is redeeming the life* of his servants;
None of those taking refuge in him will be found guilty.+
