|Jehovah a Provider and Deliverer|
|A Psalm of David; when 1 he changed 2 his behavior before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.|
| ||I WILL bless Jehovah at all times:|
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
| ||My soul shall make her boast in Jehovah:|
The meek shall hear thereof, and be glad.
| ||Oh magnify Jehovah with me,|
And let us exalt his name together.
| ||I sought Jehovah, and he answered me,|
And delivered me from all my fears.
| ||They looked unto him, and were radiant;|
And their faces shall never be confounded.
| ||This poor man cried, and Jehovah heard him,|
And saved him out of all his troubles.
| ||The angel of Jehovah encampeth round about them that fear him,|
And delivereth them.
| ||Oh taste and see that Jehovah is good:|
Blessed is the man that taketh refuge in him.
| ||Oh fear Jehovah, ye his saints;|
For there is no want to them that fear him.
| ||The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger;|
But they that seek Jehovah shall not want any good thing.
| ||Come, ye children, hearken unto me:|
I will teach you the fear of Jehovah.
| ||What man is he that desireth life,|
And loveth many days, that he may see good?
| ||Keep thy tongue from evil,|
And thy lips from speaking guile.
| ||Depart from evil, and do good;|
Seek peace, and pursue it.
| ||The eyes of Jehovah are toward the righteous,|
And his ears are open unto their cry.
| ||The face of Jehovah is against them that do evil,|
To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
| ||The righteous cried, and Jehovah heard,|
And delivered them out of all their troubles.
| ||Jehovah is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart,|
And saveth such as are of a contrite spirit.
| ||Many are the afflictions of the righteous;|
But Jehovah delivereth him out of them all.
| ||He keepeth all his bones:|
Not one of them is broken.
| ||Evil shall slay the wicked;|
And they that hate the righteous shall be condemned. 3
| ||Jehovah redeemeth the soul of his servants;|
And none of them that take refuge in him shall be condemned. 4
