1 I will bless
the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my
2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall
hear thereof, and be glad.
3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from
all my fears.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces
were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him
out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear
him, and delivereth them.
8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man
that trusteth in him.
9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them
that fear him.
10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that
seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.
11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the
fear of the LORD.
12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many 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 the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears
are open unto their cry.
16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut
off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them
out of all their troubles.
18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and
saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth
him out of them all.
20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous
shall be desolate.
22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of
them that trust in him shall be desolate.
