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] 2   I* will boast in Jehovah;+ The meek will hear and rejoice. ג [Gimel] 3   Magnify Jehovah along with me;+ Let us exalt his name together. ד [Daleth] 4   I inquired of Jehovah, and he answered me.+ He rescued me from all my fears.+ ה [He] 5   Those who looked to him became radiant;
Their faces could not be put to shame.
ז [Zayin] 6   This lowly one called, and Jehovah heard. He saved him from all his distresses.+ ח [Heth] 7   The angel of Jehovah camps all around those fearing Him,+ And he rescues them.+ ט [Teth] 8   Taste and see that Jehovah is good;+ Happy is the man who takes refuge in him. י [Yod] 9   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.+
