Psalm 34 or
Coverdale
Benedicam Dominum

1I will bless the LORD at all times; *
his praise shall ever be in my mouth.

2I will glory in the LORD; *
let the humble hear and rejoice.

3Proclaim with me the greatness of the LORD; *
let us exalt his Name together.

4I sought the LORD, and he answered me *
and delivered me out of all my terror.

5Look upon him and be radiant, *
and let not your faces be ashamed.

6I called in my affliction and the LORD heard me *
and saved me from all my troubles.

7The angel of the LORD encompasses those who fear him, *
and he will deliver them.

8Taste and see that the LORD is good; *
happy are they who trust in him!

9Fear the LORD, you that are his saints, *
for those who fear him lack nothing.

10The young lions lack and suffer hunger, *
but those who seek the LORD lack nothing that is good.

11Come, children, and listen to me; *
I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

12Who among you loves life *
and desires long life to enjoy prosperity?

13Keep your tongue from evil-speaking *
and your lips from lying words.

14Turn from evil and do good; *
seek peace and pursue it.

15The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, *
and his ears are open to their cry.

16The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, *
to root out the remembrance of them from the earth.

17The righteous cry, and the LORD hears them *
and delivers them from all their troubles.

18The LORD is near to the brokenhearted *
and will save those whose spirits are crushed.

19Many are the troubles of the righteous, *
but the LORD will deliver him out of them all.

20He will keep safe all his bones; *
not one of them shall be broken.

21Evil shall slay the wicked, *
and those who hate the righteous will be punished.

22The LORD ransoms the life of his servants, *
and none will be punished who trust in him.
