Psalm 34 Saturday Midday 1 & 3
I will bless Yahweh always; * his praise will ever be in my mouth.
In Yahweh my soul will glory; * let the humble hear and be glad.
Glorify Yahweh with me; * let us extol his name together.
I turned to Yahweh and he answered me, * and from all my terrors he rescued me.
They looked at him and their faces shone; * they will never be shamed.
This poor man called and Yahweh heard him, * and from all his anguish he saved him.
The angel of Yahweh is encamped * around those who fear him, * to rescue them.
Taste and drink deeply, for Yahweh is sweet; * happy the man who trusts in him.
Fear Yahweh, you his saints, * for those who fear him will lack nothing.
The rich will grow poor and hungry, * but they who seek Yahweh will lack no blessing.
Come, children, listen to me; * I will teach you the fear of Yahweh.
Is there a man who longs for life, * and wants time to enjoy prosperity?
Then keep your tongue from evil, * and your lips from deceitful talk.
Shun evil and do good; * seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of Yahweh attend to the just, * and his ears to their cry.
The fury of Yahweh is with the evildoers, * to root out their memory from the earth.
When the just cry, Yahweh hears them, * and from all their anguish rescues them.
Yahweh is close to the brokenhearted, * and those crushed in spirit he saves.
Many are the trials of the just, * but from all of them Yahweh rescues him.
He watches over all his bones; * not one of them shall be broken.
Evil will slay the wicked, * and those who hate the just will perish.
Yahweh ransoms the lives of his servants, * while those who trust in him will not perish.
