Psalm 71

Prayer of an Old Man for Deliverance.

1 In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge; Let me never be ashamed.
2 In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; Incline Your ear to me and save me.
3 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 [fn] and my fortress.
4 Rescue me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, Out of the grasp [fn] of the wrongdoer and ruthless man,
5 For You are my hope; O Lord [fn]God, You are my confidence from my youth.
6 By [fn] You I have been sustained from my birth; You are He who took me from my mother's womb; My praise is continually of [fn] You.

7 I have become a marvel to many, For You are my strong refuge.
8 My mouth is filled with Your praise And with Your glory all day long.
9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age; Do not forsake me when my strength fails.
10 For my enemies have spoken against [fn] me; And those who watch for my life [fn] have consulted together,
11 Saying, "God has forsaken him; Pursue and seize him, for there is no one to deliver."

12 O God, do not be far from me; O my God, hasten to my help!
13 Let those who are adversaries of my soul be ashamed and consumed; Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor, who seek to [fn] injure me.
14 But as for me, I will hope continually, And will praise [fn] You yet more and more.
15 My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness And of Your salvation all day long; For I do not know the sum [fn] of them.
16 I will come with the mighty deeds of the Lord [fn]God; I will make mention of Your righteousness, Yours alone.

17 O God, You have taught me from my youth, And I still declare Your wondrous deeds.
18 And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength [fn] to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.
19 For [fn] Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens [fn], You who have done great things; O God, who is like You?
20 You who have shown me [fn] many troubles and distresses Will revive me [fn] again, And will bring me [fn] up again from the depths of the earth.
21 May You increase my greatness And turn to comfort me.

22 I will also praise You with a [fn] harp, Even Your truth [fn], O my God; To You I will sing praises with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to You; And my soul, which You have redeemed.
24 My tongue also will utter Your righteousness all day long; For they are ashamed, for they are humiliated who seek my [fn] hurt.
