71:1-3pp -- Ps 31:1-4

1 In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge;1 let me never be put to shame.2 2 Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness; turn your ear3 to me and save me. 3 Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.4 4 Deliver5 me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,6 from the grasp of evil and cruel men.7 5 For you have been my hope,8 O Sovereign LORD, my confidence9 since my youth. 6 From birth10 I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother's womb.11 I will ever praise12 you. 7 I have become like a portent13 to many, but you are my strong refuge.14 8 My mouth15 is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor16 all day long. 9 Do not cast17 me away when I am old;18 do not forsake19 me when my strength is gone. 10 For my enemies20 speak against me; those who wait to kill21 me conspire22 together. 11 They say, "God has forsaken23 him; pursue him and seize him, for no one will rescue24 him." 12 Be not far25 from me, O God; come quickly, O my God, to help26 me. 13 May my accusers27 perish in shame;28 may those who want to harm me be covered with scorn and disgrace.29 14 But as for me, I will always have hope;30 I will praise you more and more. 15 My mouth will tell31 of your righteousness,32 of your salvation all day long, though I know not its measure. 16 I will come and proclaim your mighty acts,33 O Sovereign LORD; I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone. 17 Since my youth, O God, you have taught34 me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.35 18 Even when I am old and gray,36 do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power37 to the next generation, your might to all who are to come.38 19 Your righteousness reaches to the skies,39 O God, you who have done great things.40 Who, O God, is like you?41 20 Though you have made me see troubles,42 many and bitter, you will restore43 my life again; from the depths of the earth44 you will again bring me up. 21 You will increase my honor45 and comfort46 me once again. 22 I will praise you with the harp47 for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praise to you with the lyre,48 O Holy One of Israel.49 23 My lips will shout for joy50 when I sing praise to you-- I, whom you have redeemed.51 24 My tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long,52 for those who wanted to harm me53 have been put to shame and confusion.54
