PS 71:1 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
PS 71:2 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thy ear to me, and save me.
PS 71:3 Be thou my strong habitation, to which I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
PS 71:4 Deliver me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
PS 71:5 For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
PS 71:6 By thee have I been sustained from my birth: thou art he that brought me into life: my praise shall be continually of thee.
PS 71:7 I am as a wonder to many; but thou art my strong refuge.
PS 71:8 Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honor all the day.
PS 71:9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
PS 71:10 For my enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
PS 71:11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
PS 71:12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
PS 71:13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonor that seek my hurt.
PS 71:14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
PS 71:15 My mouth shall show forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
PS 71:16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
PS 71:17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
PS 71:18 Now also when I am old and gray-headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have shown thy strength to this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
PS 71:19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like to thee!
PS 71:20 Thou, who hast shown me great and severe troubles, wilt revive me again, and wilt bring me again from the depths of the earth.
PS 71:21 Thou wilt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
PS 71:22 I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: to thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
PS 71:23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
PS 71:24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought to shame, that seek my hurt.
