Taste and See That Yahweh Is Good
Of David. When he feigned madness before Abimelech, so that he drove him away and he departed.
I will bless Yahweh at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul will make its boast in Yahweh;
The humble will hear it and rejoice.
O magnify Yahweh with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
I inquired of Yahweh, and He answered me,
And delivered me from all that I dread.
ה He - ו Vav 5
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces will never be humiliated.
This poor man called out, and Yahweh heard him
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of Yahweh encamps around those who fear Him,
And rescues them.
O taste and see that Yahweh is good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
Oh, fear Yahweh, you His saints;
For there is no want to those who fear Him.
The young lions do lack and suffer hunger;
But they who inquire of Yahweh shall not be in want of any good thing.
Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of Yahweh.
Who is the man who delights in life
And loves many days that he may see good?
Guard your tongue from evil
And your lips from speaking deceit.
Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of Yahweh are toward the righteous
And His ears are open to their cry for help.
The face of Yahweh is against evildoers,
To cut off the memory of them from the earth.
The righteous cry, and Yahweh hears
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
Yahweh is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Many are the evils against the righteous,
But Yahweh delivers him out of them all.
He keeps all his bones,
Not one of them is broken.
Evil shall slay the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous will be condemned. 22
Yahweh redeems the soul of His slaves,
And all those who take refuge in Him will not be condemned.
