PSALMS · Chapter 71
71:1 In you, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
71:2 Deliver me in your righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline your ear unto me, and save me.
71:3 Be you my strong habitation, unto which I may continually resort: you have given commandment to save me; for you are my rock and my fortress.
71:4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
71:5 For you are my hope, O Lord GOD: you are my trust from my youth.
71:6 By you have I been held up from the womb: you are he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of you.
71:7 I am as a wonder unto many; but you are my strong refuge.
71:8 Let my mouth be filled with your praise and with your honour all the day.
71:9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength fails.
71:10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
71:11 Saying, God has forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
71:12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
71:13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
71:14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise you more and more.
71:15 My mouth shall show forth your righteousness and your salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
71:16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of your righteousness, even of your only.
71:17 O God, you have taught me from my youth: and until now have I declared your wondrous works.
71:18 Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed your strength unto this generation, and your power to every one that is to come.
71:19 Your righteousness also, O God, is very high, who have done great things: O God, who is like unto you!
71:20 You, which have showed me great and sore troubles, shall restore life in me again, and shall bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
71:21 You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
71:22 I will also praise you with the psaltery, even your truth, O my God: unto you will I sing with the harp, O you Holy One of Israel.
71:23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto you; and my soul, which you have redeemed.
71:24 My tongue also shall talk of your righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
