Psalm 34 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)
A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.
1 ¶ I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall glory in the LORD; the meek shall hear of this, and be glad.
3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto him and were lightened, and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encamps round about those that fear him and delivers them.
8 O taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man that shall trust in him.
9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints; for those that fear him lack nothing.
10 The young lions do lack and suffer hunger, but those that seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.
11 ¶ Come, ye children, hearken unto me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12 Who is the man that desires life and loves many days that he may see good?
13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16 The anger of the LORD is against those that do evil to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17 The righteous cried out, and the LORD heard and delivered them out of all their troubles.
18 The LORD is near unto those that are of a broken heart and saves such as are of a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD shall deliver him out of them all,
20 keeping all his bones; not one of them shall be broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked; and those that hate the righteous shall be declared guilty.
22 The LORD ransoms the soul of his slaves, and none of those that trust in him shall be declared guilty.
