By David, when he pretended to be insane before Abimelech, who drove him away. So David[a] left.
Learning about God’s Deliverance
34 [b]I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise will be in my mouth continuously. 2 My soul will glorify the Lord; the humble will hear about it and rejoice. 3 Magnify the Lord with me! Let us lift up his name together!
4 I sought the Lord and he answered me; he delivered me from all of my fears. 5 Look to him and be radiant; and you[c] will not be ashamed.
6 This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard and delivered him from all of his distress. 7 The angel of the Lord surrounds those who fear him, and he delivers them.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good! How blessed is the person who trusts in him! 9 Fear the Lord, you holy ones of his; for those who fear him lack nothing. 10 Young lions lack and go hungry, but those who seek the Lord will never lack any good thing.
11 Come, children, listen to me, and I will teach you the fear of the Lord. 12 Who among you[d] desires life, and wants long life in order to see good? 13 Then keep your tongue from doing evil and your lips from spreading lies. 14 Avoid evil and do good! Seek peace and pursue it!
15 The[e]Lord looks on the righteous, and he listens to their cries. 16 The face of the Lord is set against those who do evil, and he will remove people’s recollection of them from the earth.
17 The Lord hears those who cry out, and he delivers them from all their distress. 18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, and he delivers those whose spirit has been crushed. 19 A righteous person will have many troubles, but the Lord will deliver him from them all. 20 God[f] protects all his bones; not one of them will be broken.
21 Evil will kill the wicked; those who hate the righteous will be held guilty. 22 The Lord redeems the lives of his servants; and none of those who trust in him will be held guilty.
