Respecting God (Psalm 34:11-22)

Kindred listen to what I say,
I will declare how to fear the Lord:
Who wants goodness all of his days?
Life and old age with his youth restored?

Get on the move, then; from Egypt flee,
Listen and heed all the Law’s decrees.
And keep your tongue from the world’s deceit,
Your lips speaking praise of the Trinity.

Turn from evil and do what’s right.
Search out peace and hunt it down.
Righteous people are in God’s sight,
The evil experience His wrathful frown.

Hearing pleading, the Lord will save,
God is next to the humbled man.
He makes safe the heart that is flayed,
And delivers the person who would be damned.

He saves your bones to keep them whole,
Declaring that all guilty men die.
God redeems His loved ones’ souls,
Trust and respect God for it is right!
