Psalm 34. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 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 them that fear Him suffer no want.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger, but they that seek the Lordshall not want any good thing.
11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me; I will teach you the fear 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.
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 are 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.
Look down, O Lord, from your heavenly throne,
illumine the darkness of this night
with your celestial brightness,
and from your children of light
banish the deeds of darkness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
May God bless you all and ‘The Church of the Christian Nation’. Amen.
