Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed. I will bless
the LORD at all times: his praise [shall] continually [be] in
34:2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall
hear [of it] and be glad.
34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name
34:4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from
all my fears.
34:5 They looked to him, and were lightened: and their faces
were not ashamed.

him out of all his troubles.
34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth around them that fear him,
and delivereth them.

man [that] trusteth in him.
34:9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for [there is] no want to
them that fear him.
34:10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that
seek the LORD shall not want any good [thing].
34:11 Come, ye children, hearken to me; I will teach you the
fear of the LORD.
34:12 What man [is he that] desireth life, [and] loveth [many]
days, that he may see good?

34:15 The eyes of the LORD [are] upon the righteous, and his
ears [are open] to their cry.
34:16 The face of the LORD [is] against them that do evil, to
cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

them out of all their troubles.
34:18 The LORD [is] nigh to them that are of a broken heart; and
saveth such as are of a contrite spirit.
34:19 Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD
delivereth him out of them all.
34:20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the
righteous shall be desolate.
34:22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of
them that trust in him shall be desolate.
