Psalm 34

The Lord, a Provider and Deliverer.

A Psalm of David when he [a]feigned madness before [b]Abimelech, who drove him away and he departed.

1I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul will make its boast in the Lord;
The humble will hear it and rejoice.
O magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.

I sought the Lord, and He answered me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces will never be ashamed.
This [c]poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,
And rescues them.

O taste and see that the Lord is good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
O fear the Lord, you His saints;
For to those who fear Him there is no want.
10 The young lions do lack and suffer hunger;
But they who seek the Lord shall not be in want of any good thing.
11 Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 Who is the man who desires life
And loves length of days that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil
And your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
And His ears are open to their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against evildoers,
To cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 The righteous cry, and the Lord hears
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are [d]crushed in spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He keeps all his bones,
Not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous will be [e]condemned.
22 The Lord redeems the soul of His servants,
And none of those who take refuge in Him will be [f]condemned.

Salme 34

Fordelen ved at adlyde Gud

1En sang af David om dengang, han foregav at være gået fra forstanden foran kong Abimelek, så kongen sendte ham væk.

Jeg vil prise Herren til hver en tid,
    altid fortælle om hans magt og storhed.
Jeg glæder mig over, hvad Herren har gjort,
    lad de forkuede høre det og fryde sig.
Kom og slut jer til mig,
    lad os sammen prise Herren.
Jeg bad Herren om hjælp, og han svarede mig,
    han befriede mig fra al min frygt.
De, som stoler på Herren, skal stråle af glæde,
    for han vil aldrig nogensinde skuffe dem.
Jeg råbte til Herren i min nød,
    og han reddede mig ud af mine problemer.
For Herrens engel redder enhver,
    som ønsker at gøre Guds vilje.
Prøv selv at opleve Herrens godhed,
    lykkelige er de, der søger hjælp hos ham.
10 Adlyd Herren, I, som tilhører ham,
    de, der følger ham, får, hvad de har brug for.
11 Selv stærke løver lider nød og sulter,
    men de, der stoler på Herren, lider ingen nød.
12 Kom, mine børn, og hør, hvad jeg siger.
    Jeg vil lære jer, hvordan man viser Herren ære.
13 I, der gerne vil have et godt liv
    og ønsker jer gode dage,
14 I skal holde jeres tunge i skak
    og ikke lade løgn komme over jeres læber.
15 Hold jer fra det onde,
    gør det gode og stræb efter fred.
16 Herren beskytter de retskafne
    og hører deres bøn om hjælp.
17 Men han er imod dem, der handler ondt.
    Han udrydder dem helt, så de ikke huskes.
18 Han hører de retsindiges råb om hjælp,
    redder dem ud af deres problemer.
19 Herren er hos dem, der føler sig knust,
    han hjælper dem, der er dybt deprimerede.
20 De uskyldige kommer også ud i problemer,
    men Herren hjælper dem igennem dem alle.
21 Ja, han beskytter dem fra alt det onde,
    så de ikke bliver knust derved.
22 De onde må bøde for deres ondskab,
    de, der bekæmper de uskyldige, bliver straffet.
23 Men Herren redder sine tjenere.
    De, der søger ham, bliver ikke straffet.
