XXXIV. Yahweh’ s Care for His Own.— An acrostic Ps., the letter Waw being omitted as in Psalms 25. Yahweh’ s care of the poor who fear Him.

Psalms 34:5. Read with LXX, “ look to him,” “ be radiant,” “ your faces.”

Psalms 34:7 . “ The angel,” i.e. the angel who represented Yahweh ( cf. Malachi 3:1, Isaiah 63:9).
