21st Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 34:2-3, 16-17, 18-19, 20-21

Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.

Verse 1:

I will bless the LORD at all times;
   his praise shall be ever in my mouth.
Let my soul glory in the LORD;
   the lowly will hear me and be glad.

Verse 2:

The LORD has eyes for the just,
   and ears for their cry.
The LORD confronts the evildoers,
   to destroy remembrance of them from the earth.

Verse 3:

When the just cry out, the LORD hears them,
   and from all their distress he rescues them.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted;
   and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.

Verse 4:

Many are the troubles of the just one,
   but out of them all the LORD delivers him;
he watches over all his bones;
   not one of them shall be broken.
