The righteous cry, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.
All Commentaries on Psalms 34:17 Go To Psalms 34
George Leo Haydock
Just. This word is omitted in Hebrew but it is supplied by all the versions; which shows that the original is not quite perfect. (Berthier)
If this were left out, the passage would refer to the wicked, ver. 16. Yet St. Jerome found the Hebrew in this state. (Haydock)
Troubles. Many experienced the divine protection in a wonderful manner, and though others fell victims to persecution, (Hebrews xi. 36.) yet they were perfectly resigned to God's will, (Berthier) and thus obtained their wishes, receiving a better reward in eternity. (Calmet)
