1 The title of the thre and thrittithe salm. To Dauid, whanne he chaungide his mouth bifor Abymalech, and he `droof out Dauid, `and he yede forth.
2 I schal blesse the Lord in al tyme; euere his heriyng is in my mouth.
3 Mi soule schal be preisid in the Lord; mylde men here, and be glad.
4 Magnyfie ye the Lord with me; and enhaunse we his name into it silf.
5 I souyte the Lord, and he herde me; and he delyueride me fro alle my tribulaciouns.
6 Neiye ye to him, and be ye liytned; and youre faces schulen not be schent.
7 This pore man criede, and the Lord herde hym; and sauyde hym fro alle hise tribulaciouns.
8 The aungel of the Lord sendith in the cumpas of men dredynge hym; and he schal delyuere hem.
9 Taaste ye, and se, for the Lord is swete; blessid is the man, that hopith in hym.
10 Alle ye hooli men of the Lord, drede hym; for no nedynesse is to men dredynge hym.
11 Riche men weren nedi, and weren hungri; but men that seken the Lord schulen not faile of al good.
12 Come, ye sones, here ye me; Y schal teche you the drede of the Lord.
13 Who is a man, that wole lijf; loueth to se good daies?
14 Forbede thi tunge fro yuel; and thi lippis speke not gile.
15 Turne thou awei fro yuel, and do good; seke thou pees, and perfitli sue thou it.
16 The iyen of the Lord ben on iust men; and hise eeren ben to her preiers.
17 But the cheer of the Lord is on men doynge yuels; that he leese the mynde of hem fro erthe.
18 Just men cryeden, and the Lord herde hem; and delyueride hem fro alle her tribulaciouns.
19 The Lord is nyy hem that ben of troblid herte; and he schal saue meke men in spirit.
20 Many tribulaciouns ben of iust men; and the Lord schal delyuere hem fro alle these.
21 The Lord kepith alle the boonys of hem; oon of tho schal not be brokun.
22 The deth of synneris is werst; and thei that haten a iust man schulen trespasse.
23 The Lord schal ayenbie the soulis of hise seruauntis; and alle, that hopen in him, schulen not trespasse.
