Psalm 70; Psalm 71; Romans 8:22-39

1 (69-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for David, to bring to remembrance that the Lord saved him.> (69-2) O God, come to my assistance; O Lord, make haste to help me. 2 (69-3) Let them be confounded and ashamed that seek my soul: 3 (69-4) Let them be turned backward, and blush for shame that desire evils to me: Let them be presently turned away blushing for shame that say to me: ’Tis well, ’tis well. 4 (69-5) Let all that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; and let such as love thy salvation say always: The Lord be magnified. 5 (69-6) But I am needy and poor; O God, help me. Thou art my helper and my deliverer: O lord, make no delay.
1 (70-1) <A psalm for David. Of the sons of Jonadab, and the former captives.> In thee, O Lord, I have hoped, let me never be put to confusion: 2 (70-2) Deliver me in thy justice, and rescue me. Incline thy ear unto me, and save me. 3 (70-3) Be thou unto me a God, a protector, and a place of strength: that thou mayst make me safe. For thou art my firmament and my refuge. 4 (70-4) Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the sinner, and out of the hand of the transgressor of the law and of the unjust. 5 (70-5) For thou art my patience, O Lord: my hope, O Lord, from my youth. 6 (70-6) By thee have I been confirmed from the womb: from my mother’s womb thou art my protector. Of thee I shall continually sing: 7 (70-7) I am become unto many as a wonder, but thou art a strong helper. 8 (70-8) Let my mouth be filled with praise, that I may sing thy glory; thy greatness all the day long. 9 (70-9) Cast me not off in the time of old age: when my strength shall fail, do not thou forsake me. 10 (70-10) For my enemies have spoken against me; and they that watched my soul have consulted together, 11 (70-11) Saying: God hath forsaken him: pursue and take him, for there is none to deliver him. 12 (70-12) O God, be not thou far from me: O my God, make haste to my help. 13 (70-13) Let them be confounded and come to nothing that detract my soul; let them be covered with confusion and blame that seek my hurt. 14 (70-14) But I will always hope; and will add to all thy praise. 15 (70-15) My mouth shall shew forth thy justice; thy salvation all the day long. Because I have not known learning, 16 (70-16) I will enter into the powers of the Lord: O Lord, I will be mindful of thy justice alone. 17 (70-17) Thou hast taught me, O God, from my youth: and till now I will declare thy wonderful works. 18 (70-18) And unto old age and grey hairs: O God, forsake me not, Until I shew forth thy arm to all the generation that is to come: Thy power, 19 (70-19) And thy justice, O God, even to the highest great things thou hast done: O God, who is like to thee? 20 (70-20) How great troubles hast thou shewn me, many and grievous: and turning thou hast brought me to life, and hast brought me back again from the depths of the earth: 21 (70-21) Thou hast multiplied thy magnificence; and turning to me thou hast comforted me. 22 (70-22) For I will also confess to thee thy truth with the instruments of psaltery: O God, I will sing to thee with the harp, thou holy one of Israel. 23 (70-23) My lips shall greatly rejoice, when I shall sing to thee; and my soul which thou hast redeemed. 24 (70-24) Yea and my tongue shall meditate on thy justice all the day; when they shall be confounded and put to shame that seek evils to me.
22 For we know that every creature groaneth and travaileth in pain, even till now. 23 And not only it, but ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit: even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption of the sons of God, the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope. But hope that is seen is not hope. For what a man seeth, why doth he hope for? 25 But if we hope for that which we see not, we wait for it with patience. 26 Likewise, the Spirit also helpeth our infirmity. For, we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit himself asketh for us with unspeakable groanings, 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what the Spirit desireth: because he asketh for the saints according to God. 28 And we know that to them that love God all things work together unto good: to such as, according to his purpose, are called to be saints. 29 For whom he foreknew, he also predestinated to be made conformable to the image of his Son: that he might be the Firstborn amongst many brethren. 30 And whom he predestinated, them he also called. And whom he called, them he also justified. And whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who is against us? 32 He that spared not even his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how hath he not also, with him, given us all things? 33 Who shall accuse against the elect of God? God is he that justifieth: 34 Who is he that shall condemn? Christ Jesus that died: yea that is risen also again, who is at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 35 Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation? Or distress? Or famine? Or nakedness? Or danger? Or persecution? Or the sword? 36 (As it is written: For thy sake, we are put to death all the day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.) 37 But in all these things we overcome, because of him that hath loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
