1I will bless Yahweh at all times. His song of praise will always be in my mouth.
2My soul will boast in Yahweh. May the afflicted hear it and may they rejoice!
3Oh magnify Yahweh with me! Let’s exalt his name together!
4I sought Yahweh, and he answered me, yes, he delivered me from all my fears.
5Look to him and be radiant. Then their faces will never be ashamed.
6This afflicted person cried out and Yahweh heard him, and delivered him out of all his distress.
7The angel of Yahweh encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.
8Oh taste and see that Yahweh is good. Blessed is the man who seeks refuge in him.
9Fear Yahweh, O you his holy ones, for those who fear him have no lack.
10The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger, but those who seek Yahweh will not lack any good thing.
11Come, you children, listen to me. I will teach you the fear of Yahweh.
12Who is the person who desires life, loving his days, so that he may see good?
13Guard your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
14Turn away from evil and do good. Seek peace, and pursue it.
15Yahweh’s eyes are toward the righteous. Yes, his ears listen to their cry for help.
16Yahweh’s face is against those who do evil, to destroy the memory of them from the earth.
17The righteous cry out and Yahweh hears, and delivers them out of all their distresses.
18Yahweh is near to those who have a broken heart and he delivers those who have a crushed spirit.
19Many evils happen to a righteous person, but Yahweh delivers him out of them all.
20He keeps watch over all of his bones. Not one of them is broken.
21Evil will kill a wicked person. Yes, those who hate a righteous person will suffer punishment.
22Yahweh redeems the soul of his servants. Indeed, none of those who seek refuge in him will suffer punishment.
