In thee, Jehovah, do I trust: let me never be ashamed.
Deliver me in thy righteousness, and rescue me; incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
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.
My God, rescue me out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
For thou art my hope, O Lord Jehovah, my confidence from my youth.
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.
I have been as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
My mouth shall c be filled with thy praise, with thy glory, all the day.
Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
For mine enemies speak against me, and they that watch for my soul consult together,
Saying, God hath forsaken him; pursue and seize him, for there is none to deliver.
O God, be not far from me; my God, hasten to my help.
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.
But as for me, I will hope continually, and will praise thee yet more and more.
My mouth shall declare thy righteousness, [and] thy salvation all the day: for I know not the numbers [thereof].
I will go in the might of the Lord Jehovah; I will recall e thy righteousness, thine alone.
O God, thou hast taught me from my youth, and hitherto have I proclaimed thy marvellous works:
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.
And thy righteousness, O God, reacheth on high, f thou who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee?
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;
Thou wilt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side. h22
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.
My lips shall exult when I k sing psalms unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
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.
