King James Bible : Psalms : Chapter 71


71:1
In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
71:2
Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
71:3
Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
71:4
Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
71:5
For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
71:6
By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother’s bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.
71:7
I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
71:8
Let my mouth be 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 speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
71:11
Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
71:12
O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
71:13
Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
71:14
But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
71:15
My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
71:16
I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
71:17
O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
71:18
Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
71:19
Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!
71:20
Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
71:21
Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
71:22
I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
71:23
My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
71:24
My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
