In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge;1 let me never be put to shame.22
Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness; turn your ear3 to me and save me.
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.44
Deliver5 me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,6 from the grasp of evil and cruel men.75
For you have been my hope,8 O Sovereign LORD, my confidence9 since my youth.
From birth10 I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother's womb.11 I will ever praise12 you.
I have become like a portent13 to many, but you are my strong refuge.14
