Psalm 34: Taste and see that the LORD is good!

 1 I will bless the LORD at all times
   his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 
2 My soul makes its boast in the LORD
   let the humble hear and be glad. 
3 Oh, magnify the LORD with me, 
   and let us exalt his name together!

 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me 
   and delivered me from all my fears
5 Those who look to him are radiant
   and their faces shall never be 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 encamps 
   around those who fear him, and delivers them.

 8 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! 
   Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him
9 Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, 
   for those who fear him have no lack
10 The young lions suffer want and hunger; 
   but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

 11 Come, O children, listen to me; 
   I will teach you the fear of the LORD. 
12 What man is there who desires life 
   and loves many days, that he may see good? 
13 Keep your tongue from evil 
   and your lips from speaking deceit
14 Turn away from evil and do good
   seek peace and pursue it.

 15 The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous 
   and his ears toward their cry
16 The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, 
   to cut off the memory of them from the earth. 
17 When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears 
   and delivers them out of all their troubles. 
18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted 
   and saves the crushed in spirit.

 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, 
   but the LORD delivers him out of them all
20 He keeps all his bones
   not one of them is broken. 
21 Affliction will slay the wicked, 
   and those who hate the righteous will be condemned. 
22 The LORD redeems the life of his servants; 
   none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.
