Psalm 71

71:1 In thee, O Lord, doe I put my trust, let me neuer be put to confusion. 71:2 Deliuer mee in thy righteousnesse, and cause me to escape: incline thine eare vnto me, and saue me. 71:3 Bee thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast giuen commandement to saue mee, for thou art my rocke, and my fortresse. 71:4 Deliuer me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the vnrighteous, and cruel man. 71:5 For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth. 71:6 By thee haue I bene holden vp from the wombe: thou art hee that tooke mee out of my mothers vowels, my praise shalbe continually of thee. 71:7 I am as a wonder vnto many, but thou art my strong refuge. 71:8 Let my mouth bee filled with thy praise, and with thy honour all the day. 71:9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth. 71:10 For mine enemies speake against mee: and they that lay waite for my soule, take counsell together, 71:11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him, for there is none to deliuer him. 71:12 O God, be not farre from mee: O my God, make haste for my helpe. 71:13 Let them be confounded and consumed, that are aduersaries to my soule: let them bee couered with reproch and dishonour, that seeke my hurt. 71:14 But I wil hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. 71:15 My mouth shall shew foorth thy righteousnesse, and thy saluation all the day: for I know not the numbers thereof. 71:16 I will goe in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of thy righteousnesse, euen of thine onely. 71:17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto haue I declared thy wonderous workes. 71:18 Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, forsake me not: vntill I haue shewed thy strength vnto this generation, and thy power to euery one that is to come. 71:19 Thy righteousnes also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like vnto thee 71:20 Thou which hast shewed mee great, and sore troubles, shalt quicken mee againe, and shalt bring mee vp againe from the depthes of the earth. 71:21 Thou shalt increase my greatnesse, and comfort me on euery side. 71:22 I will also praise thee with the psalterie, euen thy trueth, O my God: vnto thee will I sing with the harpe, O thou Holy one of Israel. 71:23 My lippes shall greatly reioyce when I sing vnto thee: and my soule, which thou hast redeemed. 71:24 My tongue also shall talke of thy righteousnesse all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought vnto shame, that seeke my hurt.
