Chapter 71

PSA.71:1 In You, O LORD, I put my trust; Let me never be put to shame.
PSA.71:2 Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape; Incline Your ear to me, and save me.
PSA.71:3 Be my strong refuge, To which I may resort continually; You have given the commandment to save me, For You are my rock and my fortress.
PSA.71:4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, Out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
PSA.71:5 For You are my hope, O Lord GOD; You are my trust from my youth.
PSA.71:6 By You I have been upheld from birth; You are He who took me out of my mother’s womb. My praise shall be continually of You.
PSA.71:7 I have become as a wonder to many, But You are my strong refuge.
PSA.71:8 Let my mouth be filled with Your praise And with Your glory all the day.
PSA.71:9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age; Do not forsake me when my strength fails.
PSA.71:10 For my enemies speak against me; And those who lie in wait for my life take counsel together,
PSA.71:11 Saying, “God has forsaken him; Pursue and take him, for there is none to deliver him.”
PSA.71:12 O God, do not be far from me; O my God, make haste to help me!
PSA.71:13 Let them be confounded and consumed Who are adversaries of my life; Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor Who seek my hurt.
PSA.71:14 But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more.
PSA.71:15 My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness And Your salvation all the day, For I do not know their limits.
PSA.71:16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.
PSA.71:17 O God, You have taught me from my youth; And to this day I declare Your wondrous works.
PSA.71:18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come.
PSA.71:19 Also Your righteousness, O God, is very high, You who have done great things; O God, who is like You?
PSA.71:20 You, who have shown me great and severe troubles, Shall revive me again, And bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
PSA.71:21 You shall increase my greatness, And comfort me on every side.
PSA.71:22 Also with the lute I will praise you-And Your faithfulness, O my God! To You I will sing with the harp, O Holy One of Israel.
PSA.71:23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to You, And my soul, which You have redeemed.
PSA.71:24 My tongue also shall talk of Your righteousness all the day long; For they are confounded, For they are brought to shame Who seek my hurt.
