Taste and See That the Lord Is Good

Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.

1I will bless the Lord at all times;

his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2My soul makes its boast in the Lord;

let the humble hear and be glad.

3Oh, magnify the Lord with me,

and let us exalt his name together!

4I sought the Lord, and he answered me

and delivered me from all my fears.

5Those who look to him are radiant,

and their faces shall never be ashamed.

6This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him

and saved him out of all his troubles.

7The angel of the Lord encamps

around those who fear him, and delivers them.

8Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!

Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!

9Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,

for those who fear him have no lack!

10The young lions suffer want and hunger;

but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

11Come, O children, listen to me;

I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

12What man is there who desires life

and loves many days, that he may see good?

13Keep your tongue from evil

and your lips from speaking deceit.

14Turn away from evil and do good;

seek peace and pursue it.

15The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous

and his ears toward their cry.

16The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,

to cut off the memory of them from the earth.

17When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears

and delivers them out of all their troubles.

18The Lord is near to the brokenhearted

and saves the crushed in spirit.

19Many are the afflictions of the righteous,

but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

20He keeps all his bones;

not one of them is broken.

21Affliction will slay the wicked,

and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.

22The Lord redeems the life of his servants;

none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.
