Psalm 34
New American Standard Bible►► 

The LORD, a Provider and the One Who Rescues Me.

A Psalm of David, when he pretended to be insane before [a]Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.

1I will bless the LORD at all times;

His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2My soul will make its boast in the LORD;

The humble will hear it and rejoice.

3Exalt the LORD with me,

And let’s exalt His name together.

4I sought the LORD and He answered me,

And rescued me from all my fears.

5They looked to Him and were radiant,

And their faces will never be ashamed.

6This wretched man cried out, and the LORD heard him,

And saved him out of all his troubles.

7The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him,

And rescues them.

8Taste and see that the LORD is good;

How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!

9Fear the LORD, you His saints;

For to those who fear Him there is no lack of anything.

10The young lions do without and suffer hunger;

But they who seek the LORD will not lack any good thing.

11Come, you children, listen to me;

I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

12Who is the person who desires life

And loves length of days, that he may see good?

13Keep your tongue from evil

And your lips from speaking deceit.

14Turn from evil and do good;

Seek peace and pursue it.

15The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous,

And His ears are toward their cry for help.

16The face of the LORD is against evildoers,

To eliminate the memory of them from the earth.

17The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears

And rescues them from all their troubles.

18The LORD is near to the brokenhearted

And saves those who are [b]crushed in spirit.

19The afflictions of the righteous are many,

But the LORD rescues him from them all.

20He protects all his bones,

Not one of them is broken.

21Evil will bring death to the wicked,

And those who hate the righteous will suffer for their guilt.

22The LORD redeems the souls of His servants,

And none of those who take refuge in Him will suffer for their guilt.
