Psalm 71

CEB 1 I've taken refuge in you, LORD. Don't let me ever be put to shame! NRS 1 In you, O Lord, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame. CEB 2 Deliver me and rescue me by your righteousness! Bend your ear toward me and save me! NRS 2 In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; incline your ear to me and save me. CEB 3 Be my rock of refuge where I can always escape. You commanded that my life be saved because you are my rock and my fortress. NRS 3 Be to me a rock of refuge, a strong fortress, to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. CEB 4 My God, rescue me from the power of the wicked; rescue me from the grip of the wrongdoer and the oppressor NRS 4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of the unjust and cruel. CEB 5 because you are my hope, Lord. You, LORD, are the one I've trusted since childhood. NRS 5 For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth. CEB 6 I've depended on you from birth— you cut the cord when I came from my mother's womb. My praise is always about you. NRS 6 Upon you I have leaned from my birth; it was you who took me from my mother's womb. My praise is continually of you. CEB 7 I've become an example to many people because you are my strong refuge. NRS 7 I have been like a portent to many, but you are my strong refuge. CEB 8 My mouth is filled with your praise, glorifying you all day long. NRS 8 My mouth is filled with your praise, and with your glory all day long. CEB 9 Don't cast me off in old age. Don't abandon me when my strength is used up! NRS 9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age; do not forsake me when my strength is spent. CEB 10 Yes, my enemies have been talking about me; those who stalk me plot together: NRS 10 For my enemies speak concerning me, and those who watch for my life consult together. CEB 11 "God has abandoned him! Pursue him! Grab him because no one will deliver him!" NRS 11 They say, "Pursue and seize that person whom God has forsaken, for there is no one to deliver." CEB 12 Don't be far from me, God! My God, hurry to help me! NRS 12 O God, do not be far from me; O my God, make haste to help me! CEB 13 Let my accusers be put to shame, completely finished off! Let those who seek my downfall be dressed in insults and disgrace! NRS 13 Let my accusers be put to shame and consumed; let those who seek to hurt me be covered with scorn and disgrace. CEB 14 But me? I will hope. Always. I will add to all your praise. NRS 14 But I will hope continually, and will praise you yet more and more. CEB 15 My mouth will repeat your righteous acts and your saving deeds all day long. I don't even know how many of those there are! NRS 15 My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all day long, though their number is past my knowledge. CEB 16 I will dwell on your mighty acts, my Lord. LORD, I will help others remember nothing but your righteous deeds. NRS 16 I will come praising the mighty deeds of the Lord God, I will praise your righteousness, yours alone. CEB 17 You've taught me since my youth, God, and I'm still proclaiming your wondrous deeds! NRS 17 O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds. CEB 18 So, even in my old age with gray hair, don't abandon me, God! Not until I tell generations about your mighty arm, tell all who are yet to come about your strength, NRS 18 So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to all the generations to come. Your power CEB 19 and about your ultimate righteousness, God, because you've done awesome things! Who can compare to you, God? NRS 19 and your righteousness, O God, reach the high heavens. You who have done great things, O God, who is like you? CEB 20 You, who have shown me many troubles and calamities, will revive me once more. From the depths of the earth, you will raise me up one more time. NRS 20 You who have made me see many troubles and calamities will revive me again; from the depths of the earth you will bring me up again. CEB 21 Please increase my honor and comfort me all around. NRS 21 You will increase my honor, and comfort me once again. CEB 22 Then I'll give you thanks with a harp— I will thank you for your faithfulness, my God. I will make music for you with the lyre, holy one of Israel. NRS 22 I will also praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praises to you with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel. CEB 23 My lips will rejoice aloud when I make music for you; my whole being, which you saved, will do the same. NRS 23 My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to you; my soul also, which you have rescued. CEB 24 My tongue, also, will tell of your righteousness all day long, because those who seek my downfall have been put to shame and disgraced. NRS 24 All day long my tongue will talk of your righteous help, for those who tried to do me harm have been put to shame, and disgraced.
