10 The rich have become poor and hungry: but they that seek the Lord diligently shall not want any good thing. Pause. 11 Come, ye children, hear me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 What man is there that desires life, loving to see good days? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. 14 Turn away from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 15 The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears [are open] to their prayer: 16 but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to destroy their memorial from the earth. The righteous cried, and the Lord hearkened to them, 17 and delivered them out of all their afflictions. 18 The Lord is near to them that are of a contrite heart; and will save the lowly in spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but out of them all Lord will deliver them.
20 He keeps all their bones: not one of them shall be broken. 21 The death of sinners is evil: and they that hate righteousness will go wrong. 22 The Lord will redeem the souls of his servants: and none of those that hope in him shall go wrong. .Psalms 33
