Of David, when he disguised his sanity+ before A·bim′e·lech, who drove him away, and he left. א [Aleph]
34  I will praise Jehovah at all times; His praise will be on my lips constantly.
ב [Beth]
  I* will boast in Jehovah;+ The meek will hear and rejoice.
ג [Gimel]
  Magnify Jehovah along with me;+ Let us exalt his name together.
ד [Daleth]
  I inquired of Jehovah, and he answered me.+ He rescued me from all my fears.+
ה [He]
  Those who looked to him became radiant; Their faces could not be put to shame.
ז [Zayin]
  This lowly one called, and Jehovah heard. He saved him from all his distresses.+
ח [Heth]
  The angel of Jehovah camps all around those fearing Him,+ And he rescues them.+
ט [Teth]
  Taste and see that Jehovah is good;+ Happy is the man who takes refuge in him.
י [Yod]
  Fear Jehovah, all you his holy ones, For those who fear him lack nothing.+
כ [Kaph]
10  Even strong young lions* have been reduced to hunger, But those seeking Jehovah will lack nothing good.+
ל [Lamed]
11  Come, my sons, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of Jehovah.+
מ [Mem]
12  Who among you takes pleasure in life And would love to see many good days?+
נ [Nun]
13  Then guard your tongue from what is bad,+ Your lips from speaking deception.+
ס [Samekh]
14  Turn away from what is bad and do what is good;+ Seek peace and pursue it.+
ע [Ayin]
15  The eyes of Jehovah are on the righteous,+ And his ears listen to their cry for help.+
פ [Pe]
16  But the face of Jehovah is against those doing what is bad, To erase all memory of them from the earth.+
צ [Tsade]
17  They cried out, and Jehovah heard;+ He rescued them from all their distresses.+
ק [Qoph]
18  Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted;+ He saves those who are crushed in spirit.*+
ר [Resh]
19  Many are the hardships* of the righteous one,+ But Jehovah rescues him from them all.+
ש [Shin]
20  He is guarding all his bones; Not one of them has been broken.+
ת [Taw]
21  Disaster will put the wicked to death; Those hating the righteous will be found guilty.
22  Jehovah is redeeming the life* of his servants; None of those taking refuge in him will be found guilty.+
