I sought the Lord,(A) and he answered me;
    he delivered(B) me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;(C)
    their faces are never covered with shame.(D)
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
    he saved him out of all his troubles.(E)
The angel of the Lord(F) encamps around those who fear him,
    and he delivers(G) them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;(H)
    blessed is the one who takes refuge(I) in him.
Fear the Lord,(J) you his holy people,
    for those who fear him lack nothing.(K)
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
    but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.(L)
11 Come, my children, listen(M) to me;
    I will teach you(N) the fear of the Lord.(O)
12 Whoever of you loves life(P)
    and desires to see many good days,
13 keep your tongue(Q) from evil
    and your lips from telling lies.(R)
14 Turn from evil and do good;(S)
    seek peace(T) and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord(U) are on the righteous,(V)
    and his ears are attentive(W) to their cry;
16 but the face of the Lord is against(X) those who do evil,(Y)
    to blot out their name(Z) from the earth.

17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears(AA) them;
    he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 The Lord is close(AB) to the brokenhearted(AC)
    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19 The righteous person may have many troubles,(AD)
    but the Lord delivers him from them all;(AE)
20 he protects all his bones,
    not one of them will be broken.(AF)

21 Evil will slay the wicked;(AG)
    the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22 The Lord will rescue(AH) his servants;
    no one who takes refuge(AI) in him will be condemned.
