Psalms Chapter 71 (Index)

001  In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.

002  Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.

003  Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.

004  Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.

005  For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.

006  By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.

007  I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.

008  Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.

009  Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.

010  For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,

011  Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.

012  O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.

013  Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.

014  But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.

015  My mouth shall show forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.

016  I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.

017  O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.

018  Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.

019  Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!

020  Thou, which hast showed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.

021  Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.

022  I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.

023  My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.

024  My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
