Psalm 34:15–22

The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous,   and his ears are open to their cry.

The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,   to root out the remembrance of them from the earth.

The righteous cry, and the Lord hears them   and delivers them from all their troubles.

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted   and will save those whose spirits are crushed.

Many are the troubles of the righteous,   but the Lord will deliver him out of them all.

He will keep safe all his bones;   not one of them shall be broken.

Evil shall slay the wicked,   and those who hate the righteous will be punished.

The Lord ransoms the life of his servants,   and none will be punished who trust in him.
