In a You, O LORD, I put my trust;
Let me never be put to shame. 2 b Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape;
c Incline Your ear to me, and save me. 3 d Be my 1 strong refuge,
To which I may resort continually;
You have given the e commandment to save me,
For You are my rock and my fortress.
f Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked,
Out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. 5 For You are g my hope, O Lord GOD;
You are my trust from my youth. 6 h By You I have been 2 upheld from birth;
You are He who took me out of my mother's womb.
My praise shall be continually of You.
i I have become as a wonder to many,
But You are my strong refuge. 8 Let j my mouth be filled with Your praise
And with Your glory all the day. 9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age;
Do not forsake me when my strength fails. 10 For my enemies speak against me;
And those who lie in wait for my life k take counsel together, 11 Saying, "God has forsaken him;
Pursue and take him, for there is none to deliver him."
l O God, do not be far from me;
O my God, m make haste to help me! 13 Let them be 3 confounded and consumed
Who are adversaries of my life;
Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor
Who seek my hurt. 14 But I will hope continually,
And will praise You yet more and more. 15 My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness
And Your salvation all the day,
For I do not know their limits. 16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD;
I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.
O God, You have taught me from my n youth;
And to this day I declare Your wondrous works. 18 Now also o when I am old and grayheaded,
O God, do not forsake me,
Until I declare Your strength to this generation,
Your power to everyone who is to come. 19 Also p Your righteousness, O God, is 4 very high,
You who have done great things;
q O God, who is like You? 20 r You, who have shown me great and severe troubles,
s Shall revive me again,
And bring me up again from the depths of the earth. 21 You shall increase my greatness,
And comfort me on every side.
Also t with the lute I will praise You -
And Your faithfulness, O my God!
To You I will sing with the harp,
O u Holy One of Israel. 23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to You,
And v my soul, which You have redeemed. 24 My tongue also shall talk of Your righteousness all the day long;
For they are confounded,
For they are brought to shame
Who seek my hurt.
