Psalm 71 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 In thee, Jehovah, do I trust: let me never be ashamed. 2 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and rescue me; incline thine ear unto me, and save me. 3 Be to me a rock of habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock a and my fortress. 4 My God, rescue me out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. 5 For thou art my hope, O Lord Jehovah, my confidence from my youth. 6 On thee have I been stayed from the womb; from the bowels of my mother thou didst draw me forth: b my praise shall be continually of thee. 7 I have been as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge. 8 My mouth shall c be filled with thy praise, with thy glory, all the day. 9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth. 10 For mine enemies speak against me, and they that watch for my soul consult together, 11 Saying, God hath forsaken him; pursue and seize him, for there is none to deliver. 12 O God, be not far from me; my God, hasten to my help. 13 Let them be ashamed, let them be consumed, that are adversaries d to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt. 14 But as for me, I will hope continually, and will praise thee yet more and more. 15 My mouth shall declare thy righteousness, [and] thy salvation all the day: for I know not the numbers [thereof]. 16 I will go in the might of the Lord Jehovah; I will recall e thy righteousness, thine alone. 17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth, and hitherto have I proclaimed thy marvellous works: 18 Now also, when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not, until I have proclaimed thine arm unto [this] generation, thy might to every one that is to come. 19 And thy righteousness, O God, reacheth on high, f thou who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee? 20 Thou, who hast shewn us many and sore troubles, wilt revive us again, and wilt bring us g up again from the depths of the earth; 21 Thou wilt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side. h 22 I will also praise thee i with the psaltery, j even thy truth, my God; unto thee will I sing psalms with the harp, thou holy One of Israel. 23 My lips shall exult when I k sing psalms unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed. 24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day; for they shall be ashamed, for they shall be brought to confusion, that seek my hurt.
