Ps 71:1In You, O Jehovah, do I take refuge; / Never let me be put to shame.

Ps 71:2In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; / Incline Your ear to me and save me.

Ps 71:3Be to me a rock of habitation for me to come to continually. / You have given command to save me, / For You are my rock and my fortress.

Ps 71:4My God, rescue me from the hand of the wicked, / From the hand of the unjust and cruel;

Ps 71:5For You are my hope, O Lord Jehovah, / My trust from my youth.

Ps 71:6On You I have been sustained since birth; / It was You who took me from my mother’s womb; / My praise is continually of You.

Ps 71:7I am like a wonder to many, / But You are my strong refuge.

Ps 71:8My mouth is filled with Your praise, / With Your glory, all day long.

Ps 71:9Do not cast me off in the time of old age; / When my strength fails, do not forsake me.

Ps 71:10For my enemies speak concerning me, / And those who watch for my soul take counsel together,

Ps 71:11Saying, God has forsaken him; / Pursue and lay hold of him, for there is no one to deliver him.

Ps 71:12O God, do not be far away from me; / My God, hasten to help me.

Ps 71:13May those who are the adversaries to my soul / Be put to shame and consumed; / May those who seek my misfortune / Wrap themselves in reproach and humiliation.

Ps 71:14But I will hope continually / And will add yet more to all Your praise.

Ps 71:15My mouth will recount Your righteousness, / Your salvation, all day long; / For I do not know its full numbers.

Ps 71:16I will come with the proof of the mighty acts of the Lord Jehovah; / I will remind men of Your righteousness, Yours alone.

Ps 71:17O God, You have taught me from my youth; / And until now I have declared Your wondrous deeds.

Ps 71:18So even into my old age and grayheadedness, / O God, do not forsake me, / Until I have declared Your strength / Unto the next generation, / Your might unto everyone who is to come.

Ps 71:19And Your righteousness, O God, is so high, / You who have done great things. / O God, who is like You?

Ps 71:20You who have shown me / Many great troubles / Will revive me again / And bring me up again / From the depths of the earth.

Ps 71:21You will increase my greatness / And will turn and comfort me.

Ps 71:22I will also praise You with the harp, / I will praise Your faithfulness, my God; / I will sing psalms to You with the lyre, / O Holy One of Israel.

Ps 71:23My lips will give a ringing shout / When I sing psalms to You, / And my soul, which You have redeemed.

Ps 71:24My tongue also will declare / Your righteousness all day long; / For they are put to shame, for they are confounded, / They who seek my misfortune.
