Psalm 34

How could one not be encouraged by this!? Beautiful Psalm! I tried to pick out parts of this psalm to reflect on, but I found that the whole thing was so wonderful. God is so, so good!!!!

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

4I sought the LORD, and he answered me
   and delivered me from all my fears.
5Those who look to him are radiant,
   and their faces shall never be 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 encamps
   around those who fear him, and delivers them.

8Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
    Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
9Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints,
   for those who fear him have no lack!
10 The young lions suffer want and hunger;
   but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

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

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

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

  1. Hi Kaleigh! I was surprised to see that we have more in common than I expected. I found your site when tag surfing, and basically checking out other Christian blogs. Now I see that you are an SLP (me too!). I’m currently working in Taiwan at an American school, which means very interesting kids! Anyway, nice to “meet” you, and wishing you blessings! Cheers, Mary

  2. I love that psalm! Thanks for sharing. =) I always find that problem when I’m trying to pick out a passage for something. I end up choosing more than one or two verses of it.
