Psalm 34-41 English Standard Version (ESV)
Taste and See That the Lord Is Good
[a] Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.
34 I will bless the Lord at all times;
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me
8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
11 Come, O children, listen to me;
15 The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
Great Is the Lord
35 Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me;
4 Let them be put to shame and dishonor
7 For without cause they hid their net for me;
9 Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord,
11 Malicious[d] witnesses rise up;
15 But at my stumbling they rejoiced and gathered;
17 How long, O Lord, will you look on?
19 Let not those rejoice over me
22 You have seen, O Lord; be not silent!
26 Let them be put to shame and disappointed altogether
27 Let those who delight in my righteousness
How Precious Is Your Steadfast Love
To the choirmaster. Of David, the servant of the Lord.
36 Transgression speaks to the wicked
5 Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
10 Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you,
He Will Not Forsake His Saints
[i] Of David.
37 Fret not yourself because of evildoers;
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
5 Commit your way to the Lord;
7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
8 Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
10 In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;
12 The wicked plots against the righteous
14 The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows
16 Better is the little that the righteous has
18 The Lord knows the days of the blameless,
20 But the wicked will perish;
21 The wicked borrows but does not pay back,
23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
25 I have been young, and now am old,
27 Turn away from evil and do good;
30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
32 The wicked watches for the righteous
34 Wait for the Lord and keep his way,
37 Mark the blameless and behold the upright,
39 The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
Do Not Forsake Me, O Lord
A Psalm of David, for the memorial offering.
38 O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger,
3 There is no soundness in my flesh
5 My wounds stink and fester
9 O Lord, all my longing is before you;
12 Those who seek my life lay their snares;
13 But I am like a deaf man; I do not hear,
15 But for you, O Lord, do I wait;
17 For I am ready to fall,
21 Do not forsake me, O Lord!
What Is the Measure of My Days?
To the choirmaster: to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
39 I said, “I will guard my ways,
4 “O Lord, make me know my end
7 “And now, O Lord, for what do I wait?
12 “Hear my prayer, O Lord,
My Help and My Deliverer
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
40 I waited patiently for the Lord;
4 Blessed is the man who makes
6 In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted,
9 I have told the glad news of deliverance[p]
11 As for you, O Lord, you will not restrain
13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me!
16 But may all who seek you
O Lord, Be Gracious to Me
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
41 Blessed is the one who considers the poor![q]
4 As for me, I said, “O Lord, be gracious to me;
8 They say, “A deadly thing is poured out[u] on him;
11 By this I know that you delight in me:
13 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
