Encouragement For Your Journey Today

I read this amazing chapter in Psalms this morning and thought I’d share it with you. I added italicized words in parenthesis to help define some of the old English words.

Psalms 34

“I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise [shall] continually [be] in my mouth.

2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear [thereof], and be glad.

3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard [him], and saved him out of all his troubles.

7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

8 O taste and see that the LORD [is] good: blessed [is] the man [that] trusteth in him.

9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for [there is] no want to them that fear him.

10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good [thing].

11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear (reverence) of the LORD.

12 What man [is he that] desireth life, [and] loveth [many] days, that he may see good?

13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile (bitterness).

14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the LORD [are] upon the righteous, and his ears [are open] unto their cry.

16 The face of the LORD [is] against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 [The righteous] cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

18 The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

19 Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.

22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.”

vs. 1-22
