Praise for Deliverance from Troubles
34 1 [A Psalm] of David; when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed. I will bless Jehovah at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make its boast in Jehovah: the meek shall hear, and rejoice. 3 Magnify Jehovah with me, and let us exalt his name together. 4 I sought Jehovah, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5 They looked unto him, and were enlightened, and their faces were not confounded. 6 This afflicted one called, and Jehovah heard [him], and saved him out of all his troubles. 7 The angel of Jehovah encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. 8 Taste and see that Jehovah is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him! 9 Fear Jehovah, ye his saints; for there is no want to them that fear him. 10 The young lions are in need and suffer hunger; but they that seek Jehovah shall not want any good.
11 Come, ye sons, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of Jehovah. 12 What man is he that desireth life, [and] loveth days, that he may see good? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile; 14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 15 The eyes of Jehovah are upon the righteous, and his ears are toward their cry; 16 The face of Jehovah is against them that do evil, to cutoff the remembrance of them from the earth: 17 [The righteous] cry, and Jehovah heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 Jehovah is nigh to those that are of a broken heart, and saveth them that are of a contrite spirit. 19 Many are the adversities of the righteous, but Jehovah delivereth him out of them all: 20 He keepeth all his bones; not one of them is broken. 21 Evil shall destroy the wicked; and they that hate the righteous shall bear their guilt. 22 Jehovah redeemeth the soul of his servants; and none of them that trust in him shall bear guilt.
