Psalm 34Benedicam Dominum
I will bless the LORD at all times; *
his praise shall ever be
in my mouth.
I will glory in the LORD; *
let the humble hear and rejoice.
Proclaim with me the greatness of the LORD; *
let us exalt his
I sought the LORD, and he answered me *
and delivered me out of
all my terror.
Look upon him and be radiant, *
and let not your faces be
I called in my affliction and the LORD heard me *
and saved me
from all my troubles.
The angel of the LORD encompasses those who fear him, *
will deliver them.
Taste and see that the LORD is good; *
happy are they who trust
Fear the LORD, you that are his saints, *
for those who fear him
The young lions lack and suffer hunger, *
but those who seek the
LORD lack nothing that is good.
Come, children, and listen to me; *
I will teach you the fear of
Who among you loves life *
and desires long life to enjoy
Keep your tongue from evil-speaking *
and your lips from lying
Turn from evil and do good; *
seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, *
and his ears are
open to their cry.
The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, *
to root out
the remembrance of them from the earth.
The righteous cry, and the LORD hears them *
and delivers them
from all their troubles.
The LORD is near to the brokenhearted *
and will save those
whose spirits are crushed.
Many are the troubles of the righteous, *
but the LORD will
deliver him out of them all.
He will keep safe all his bones; *
not one of them shall be
Evil shall slay the wicked, *
and those who hate the righteous
will be punished.
The LORD ransoms the life of his servants, *
and none will be
punished who trust in him.
