Psalms 34:9

O fear the LORD, you his saints: for there is no lack to them that fear him.
Read Chapter 34

George Leo Haydock

Though, as they were sometimes under oppression, they knew that they were to look for more substantial blessings from heaven. Hence they would not have exchanged their condition for that of the richest world ling. Such ought to be still more our sentiments, since we have beheld Christ dying naked on the cross, and his martyrs rejoicing under the most excruciating torments. (Calmet)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
