In Praise of God's Justice.  Psalm 34(v33)

A Psalm of David, when he feigned madness before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.

1I will bless Yahweh at all times;
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2My soul makes its boast in Yahweh;
let the afflicted hear and be glad.
3O magnify Yahweh with me,
and let us exalt his name together!

4I sought Yahweh, and he answered me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
5Look to him, and be radiant;
so your faces shall never be ashamed.
6This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him,
and saved him out of all his troubles.
7The angel of Yahweh encamps around those who fear him,
and delivers them.
8O taste and see that Yahweh is good!
Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!
9O fear Yahweh, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no want!
10The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek Yahweh lack no good thing.

11Come, O sons, listen to me,
I will teach you the fear of Yahweh.
12What man is there who desires life,
and covets many days, that he may enjoy good?
13Keep your tongue from evil,
and your lips from speaking deceit.
14Depart from evil, and do good;
seek peace, and pursue it.

15The eyes of Yahweh are toward the righteous,
and his ears toward their cry.
16The face of Yahweh is against evildoers,
to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17When the righteous cry for help, Yahweh hears,
and delivers them out of all their troubles.
18Yahweh is near to the brokenhearted,
and saves the crushed in spirit.

19Many are the afflictions of the righteous;
but Yahweh delivers him out of them all.
20He keeps all his bones;
not one of them is broken.
21Evil shall slay the wicked;
and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22The Yahweh redeems the life of his servants;
none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
