2 I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise will be ever in my mouth.
3 In the Lord, my soul will be praised. May the meek listen and rejoice.
4 Magnify the Lord with me, and let us extol his name in itself.
5 I sought the Lord, and he heeded me, and he carried me away from all my tribulations.
6 Approach him and be enlightened, and your faces will not be confounded.
7 This poor one cried out, and the Lord heeded him, and he saved him from all his tribulations.
8 The Angel of the Lord will encamp around those who fear him, and he will rescue them.
9 Taste and see that the Lord is sweet. Blessed is the man who hopes in him.
1 Kings 19:4-8
4 And he continued on, into the desert, for one day's journey. And when he had arrived, and was sitting under a juniper tree, he requested for his soul that he might die. And he said: "It is enough for me, O Lord. Take my soul. For I am no better than my fathers."
5 And he stretched himself out, and he slept deeply in the shadow of the juniper tree. And behold, an Angel of the Lord touched him, and said to him, "Rise up and eat."
6 He looked, and behold, at his head was bread baked under ashes, and a container of water. Then he ate and drank, and again he slept deeply.
7 And the Angel of the Lord returned a second time, and touched him, and said to him: "Rise up, eat. For a great journey again stands before you."
8 And he when he had risen up, he ate and drank. And he walked by the strength of that food for forty days and forty nights, as far as the mountain of God, Horeb.
