3 Be to me a rock of refuge,
   a strong fortress,* to save me,
   for you are my rock and my fortress.


4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,
   from the grasp of the unjust and cruel.
5 For you, O Lord, are my hope,
   my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
6 Upon you I have leaned from my birth;
   it was you who took me from my mother’s womb.
My praise is continually of you.


7 I have been like a portent to many,
   but 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 is spent.
10 For my enemies speak concerning me,
   and those who watch for my life consult together.
11 They say, ‘Pursue and seize that person
   whom God has forsaken,
   for there is no one to deliver.’


12 O God, do not be far from me;
   O my God, make haste to help me!
13 Let my accusers be put to shame and consumed;
   let those who seek to hurt me
   be covered with scorn and disgrace.
14 But I will hope continually,
   and will praise you yet more and more.
15 My mouth will tell of your righteous acts,
   of your deeds of salvation all day long,
   though their number is past my knowledge.
16 I will come praising the mighty deeds of the Lord God,
   I will praise your righteousness, yours alone.


17 O God, from my youth you have taught me,
   and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.
