71 In You, Lord, I have taken refuge; Let me never be put to shame. 2 In Your righteousness rescue me and save me; Extend Your ear to me and help me. 3 Be to me a rock of dwelling to which I may continually come; You have given the commandment to save me, For You are my rock and my fortress. 4 Save me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, From the [a]grasp of the wrongdoer and the ruthless, 5 For You are my hope; Lord [b]God, You are my confidence from my youth. 6 I have leaned on you since my birth; You are He who took me from my mother’s womb; My praise is continually [c]of You.
7 I have become a marvel to many, For You are my strong refuge. 8 My mouth is filled with Your praise And with Your glory all day long. 9 Do not cast me away at the time of my old age; Do not abandon me when my strength fails. 10 For my enemies have spoken [d]against me; And those who watch for my [e]life have consulted together, 11 Saying, “God has abandoned him; Pursue and seize him, for there is no one to save him.”
12 God, do not be far from me; My God, hurry to my aid! 13 May those who are enemies of my soul be put to shame and consumed; May they be covered with disgrace and dishonor, who seek [f]to injure me. 14 But as for me, I will wait continually, And will [g]praise You yet more and more. 15 My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness And of Your salvation all day long; For I do not know the art of writing. 16 I will come with the mighty deeds of the Lord [h]God; I will make mention of Your righteousness, Yours alone.
17 God, You have taught me from my youth, And I still declare Your wondrous deeds. 18 And even when I amold and gray, God, do not abandon me, Until I declare Your [i]strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come. 19 [j]For Your righteousness, God, reaches to the [k]heavens, You who have done great things; God, who is like You? 20 You who have shown [l]me many troubles and distresses Will revive [m]me again, And will bring [n]me up again from the depths of the earth. 21 May You increase my greatness And turn tocomfort me.
22 I will also praise You with [o]a harp, And Your [p]truth, my God; I will sing praises to You with the lyre, Holy One of Israel. 23 My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to You; And my soul, which You have redeemed. 24 My tongue also will tell of Your righteousness all day long; For they are put to shame, for they are humiliated who seek [q]my harm.
