11 Come, my children, listen as I teach you to respect the Lord. 12 Do you want to live and enjoy a long life? 13 Then don’t say cruel things and don’t tell lies. 14 Do good instead of evil and try to live at peace.
15 If you obey the Lord, he will watch over you and answer your prayers. 16 But God despises evil people, and he will wipe them all from the earth, till they are forgotten. 17 When his people pray for help, he listens and rescues them from their troubles. 18 The Lord is there to rescue all who are discouraged and have given up hope.
19 The Lord’s people may suffer a lot, but he will always bring them safely through. 20 Not one of their bones will ever be broken.
21 Wicked people are killed by their own evil deeds, and if you hate God’s people you will be punished. 22 The Lord saves the lives of his servants. Run to him for protection, and you won’t be punished.
