Psalm 71

1  In you, O Lord, do I seek refuge; 
   let me never be put to shame.
2  In your righteousness, deliver me and set me free; 
   incline your ear to me and save me.
3  Be for me a stronghold to which I may ever resort; 
   send out to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
4  Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, 
   from the grasp of the evildoer and the oppressor.
5  For you are my hope, O Lord God, 
   my confidence, even from my youth.
6  Upon you have I leaned from my birth,
      when you drew me from my mother’s womb; 
   my praise shall be always of you.
7  I have become a portent to many, 
   but you are my refuge and my strength.
8  Let my mouth be full of your praise 
   and your glory all the day long.
9  Do not cast me away in the time of old age; 
   forsake me not when my strength fails.
10  For my enemies are talking against me, 
   and those who lie in wait for my life take counsel together.
11  They say, ‘God has forsaken him;
      pursue him and take him, 
   because there is none to deliver him.’
12  O God, be not far from me; 
   come quickly to help me, O my God.
13  Let those who are against me
      be put to shame and disgrace; 
   let those who seek to do me evil
      be covered with scorn and reproach.
14  But as for me I will hope continually 
   and will praise you more and more.
