34 I will bless the Lord pat all times;
2 My soul qmakes its boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and rbe glad.
3 Oh, smagnify the Lord with me,
4 I tsought the Lord, and he answered me
5 Those who look to him are uradiant,
6 vThis poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
and wsaved him out of all his troubles.
bBlessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
10 cThe young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who dseek the Lord lack no good thing.
11 eCome, O children, listen to me;
fI will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 gWhat man is there who desires life
and loves many days, that he may hsee good?
13 iKeep your tongue from evil
and your lips from jspeaking deceit.
14 kTurn away from evil and do good;
seek peace and lpursue it.
15 mThe eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
nand his ears toward their cry.
16 oThe face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
to pcut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 nWhen the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
18 The Lord is near to qthe brokenhearted
and saves rthe crushed in spirit.
19 sMany are the afflictions of the righteous,
tbut the Lord delivers him out of them all.
unot one of them is broken.
21 vAffliction will slay the wicked,
22 The Lord wredeems the life of his servants;
none of those who take refuge in him will be xcondemned.
