Psalms 71 [Commentary] |
||In You, O LORD, I have taken refuge;
Let me never be ashamed.
||In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
Incline Your ear to me and save me.
||Be to me a rock of habitation to which I may continually come;
You have given commandment to save me,
For You are my rock and my fortress.
||Rescue me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked,
Out of the grasp of the wrongdoer and ruthless man,
||For You are my hope;
O Lord GOD, You are my confidence from my youth.
||By You I have been sustained from my birth;
You are He who took me from my mother's womb;
My praise is continually of You.
||I have become a marvel to many,
For You are my strong refuge.
||My mouth is filled with Your praise
And with Your glory all day long.
||Do not cast me off in the time of old age;
Do not forsake me when my strength fails.
||For my enemies have spoken against me;
And those who watch for my life have consulted together,
||Saying, "God has forsaken him;
Pursue and seize him, for there is no one to deliver."
||O God, do not be far from me;
O my God, hasten to my help!
||Let those who are adversaries of my soul be ashamed and consumed;
Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor, who seek to injure me.
||But as for me, I will hope continually,
And will praise You yet more and more.
||My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness
And of Your salvation all day long;
For I do not know the sum of them.
||I will come with the mighty deeds of the Lord GOD;
I will make mention of Your righteousness, Yours alone.
||O God, You have taught me from my youth,
And I still declare Your wondrous deeds.
||And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me,
Until I declare Your strength to this generation,
Your power to all who are to come.
||For Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens,
You who have done great things;
O God, who is like You?
||You who have shown me many troubles and distresses
Will revive me again,
And will bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
||May You increase my greatness
And turn to comfort me.
||I will also praise You with a harp,
Even Your truth, O my God;
To You I will sing praises with the lyre,
O Holy One of Israel.
||My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to You;
And my soul, which You have redeemed.
||My tongue also will utter Your righteousness all day long;
For they are ashamed, for they are humiliated who seek my hurt.
