An exhortation to the praise, and service of God.

[1] For David, when he changed his countenance before Achimelech, who dismissed him, and he went his way. [1 Kings 21] [2] I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise shall be always in my mouth. [3] In the Lord shall my soul be praised: let the meek hear and rejoice. [4] O magnify the Lord with me; and let us extol his name together. [5] I sought the Lord, and he heard me; and he delivered me from all my troubles.

[6] Come ye to him and be enlightened: and your faces shall not be confounded. [7] This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him: and saved him out of all his troubles. [8] The angel of the Lord shall encamp round about them that fear him: and shall deliver them. [9] O taste, and see that the Lord is sweet: blessed is the man that hopeth in him. [10] Fear the Lord, all ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

[11] The rich have wanted, and have suffered hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not be deprived of any good. [12] Come, children, hearken to me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. [13] Who is the man that desireth life: who loveth to see good days? [14] Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. [15] Turn away from evil and do good: seek after peace and pursue it.

[16] The eyes of the Lord are upon the just: and his ears unto their prayers. [17] But the countenance of the Lord is against them that do evil things: to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. [18] The just cried, and the Lord heard them: and delivered them out of all their troubles. [19] The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: and he will save the humble of spirit. [20] Many are the afflictions of the just; but out of them all will the Lord deliver them.

[21] The Lord keepeth all their bones, not one of them shall be broken. [22] The death of the wicked is very evil: and they that hate the just shall be guilty. [23] The Lord will redeem the souls of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall offend.
