Tehillim (Psalms) 34
1Aleph I bless יהוה at all times; His praise is continually in my mouth.
2Bĕt My being makes its boast in יהוה; Let the humble hear and be glad.
3Gimel Oh, make יהוה great with me, And let us exalt His Name together.
4Dalet I sought יהוה, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked to Him and were lightened, Waw And their faces were not ashamed.
6Zayin This poor one cried out and יהוה heard him, And saved him out of all his distresses.
7Ḥet The messenger of יהוה encamps all around those who fear Him, And rescues them.
8Tet Oh, taste and see that יהוה is good; Blessed is the man that takes refuge in Him!
9Yod Fear יהוה, you His set-apart ones, For there is no lack to them who fear Him!
10Kaph Young lions have lacked and been hungry; But those who seek יהוה lack not any good matter.
11Lamed Come, you children, listen to me; Let me teach you the fear of יהוה.
12Mem Who is the man who desires life, Who loves many days, in order to see good?
13Nun Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit.
14Sameḵ Turn away from evil and do good; Seek peace, and pursue it.
15Ayin The eyes of יהוה are on the righteous, And His ears unto their cry.
16 The face of יהוה is against evil-doers, To cut off their remembrance from the earth.
17Tsadi The righteous cried out, and יהוה heard, And delivered them out of all their distresses.
18Qoph יהוה is near to the broken-hearted, And saves those whose spirit is crushed.
19Rĕsh Many are the evils of the righteous,#See Psa. 71:20; 2Tim. 3:11, 12 But יהוה delivers him out of them all.
20Shin He is guarding all his bones; Not one of them is broken.
21Taw Evil does slay the wrong, And those who hate the righteous are guilty.
22יהוה redeems the lives of His servants, And none of those taking refuge in Him are guilty.
