David’s song from the time he acted crazy so Abimelech would send him away. And David did leave.
34 I will praise the Lord at all times. His praise is always on my lips. 2 My whole being praises the Lord. The poor will hear and be glad. 3 Tell the greatness of the Lord with me. Let us praise his name together.
4 I asked the Lord for help, and he answered me. He saved me from all that I feared. 5 Those who go to him for help are happy. They are never disgraced. 6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him. The Lord saved him from all his troubles. 7 The Lord saves those who fear him. His angel camps around them.
8 Examine and see how good the Lord is. Happy is the person who trusts the Lord. 9 People who belong to the Lord, fear him! Those who fear him will have everything they need. 10 Even lions may become weak and hungry. But those people who go to the Lord for help will have every good thing. 11 Children, come and listen to me. I will teach you to worship the Lord. 12 You must do these things to enjoy life and have many happy days. 13 You must not say evil things. You must not tell lies. 14 Stop doing evil and do good. Look for peace and work for it.
15 The Lord sees the good people. He listens to their prayers. 16 But the Lord is against those who do evil. He makes the world forget them. 17 The Lord hears good people when they cry out to him. He saves them from all their troubles. 18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. He saves those whose spirits have been crushed.
19 People who do what is right may have many problems. But the Lord will solve them all. 20 He will protect their very bones. Not one of them will be broken. 21 Evil will kill the wicked people. Those who hate good people will be judged guilty. 22 But the Lord saves his servants’ lives. No one who trusts him will be judged guilty.
