Salmos 34

1 <<[A Psalm] of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.>> [Aleph] I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise [shall] continually [be] in my mouth.

2 [Beth] My soul shall glory in the LORD; the meek shall hear [of this], and be glad.

3 [Gimel] O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

4 [Daleth] I sought the LORD, and he heard me and delivered me from all my fears.

5 [He] They looked unto him and were lightened, and their faces were not ashamed.

6 [Vau] This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard [him] and saved him out of all his troubles.

7 [Zain] The angel of the LORD encamps round about those that fear him and delivers them.

8 [Cheth] O taste and see that the LORD [is] good; blessed [is] the man [that] shall trust in him.

9 [Teth] O fear the LORD, ye his saints; for those that fear him lack nothing.

10 [Jod] The young lions do lack and suffer hunger, but those that seek the LORD shall not lack any good [thing].

11 [Caph] Come, ye children, hearken unto me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

12 [Lamed] Who [is] the man that desires life [and] loves [many] days that he may see good?

13 [Mem] Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

14 [Nun] Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

15 [Samech] The eyes of the LORD [are] upon the righteous, and his ears [are open] unto their cry.

16 [Ain] The anger of the LORD [is] against those that do evil to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 [Pe] [The righteous] cried out, and the LORD heard and delivered them out of all their troubles.

18 [Tzaddi] The LORD [is] near unto those that are of a broken heart and saves such as are of a contrite spirit.

19 [Koph] Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD shall deliver him out of them all,

20 [Resh] keeping all his bones; not one of them shall be broken.

21 [Schin] Evil shall slay the wicked; and those that hate the righteous shall be [declared] guilty.

22 [Tau] The LORD ransoms the soul of his servants, and none of those that trust in him shall be [declared] guilty.:
