1 By David, when he disguised his reason before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed. I will bless the Lord at all times: continually shall his praise be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear it, and be rejoiced.
3 Oh magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and from all that I dreaded did he deliver me.
5 They who looked unto him, were indeed enlightened, and their faces were not put to the blush.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and out of all his distresses did he save him.
7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about those who fear him, and delivereth them.
8 Experience and see that the Lord is good: happy is the man that trusteth in him.
9 Oh fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to those who fear him.
10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not want any good.
11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: the fear of the Lord will I teach you.
12 Who is the man that desireth life, loveth many days, that he may see happiness?
13 Guard thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking deceit.
14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the Lord are directed unto the righteous, and his ears unto their cry.
16 But the anger of the Lord is against those that do evil, to cut off from the earth their remembrance.
17 Those cry, and the Lord heareth, and from all their distresses he delivereth them.
18 The Lord is nigh unto those that are brokenhearted: and he saveth those that are of a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but out of them all the Lord ever delivereth him.
20 He watcheth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
21 The evil will slay the wicked: and they who hate the righteous shall incur guiltiness.
22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and all that trust in him shall not incur guiltiness.
