He makes the tempest a calm, And the waves of the sea are still. They are glad when the waves go down; To the haven they long for he brings them. Let them praise the Lord for his love, For his wonderful works unto men; In the popular assembly extol him, In the council of elders praise him.
GOD'S PROTECTION OF THOSE WHO TRUST IN HIM
I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise is continually in my mouth, My soul glories in the Lord, Let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
0 exalt the Lord with me,
Let us praise his name together.
1 sought the Lord and he answered me, From all my fears he delivered me.
He who looks to him, becomes radiant, And his face is not covered with shame. This afflicted man cried and he heard him, And from all his distresses delivered him. The angel of the Lord encamps About those who revere him, and saves them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
Happy the man who seeks refuge with him.
Revere the Lord, 0 holy ones,
For those who revere him lack nothing.
Though young lions feel want and suffer hunger,
Those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
Come, children, listen to me;
I will teach you true religion:
Who of you desires to live,
Loves long life that he may enjoy happiness?
Then keep your tongue from evil,
