NASB — Psalms 71 — KJV

Prayer of an Old Man for Deliverance.

  1 aIn You, O LORD, I have taken refuge;
  Let me never be ashamed.
  2 aIn Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
  bIncline Your ear to me and save me.
  3 aBe to me a rock of bhabitation to which I may continually come;
  You have given ccommandment to save me,
  For You are dmy Irock and my fortress.
  4 aRescue me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked,
  Out of the Igrasp of the wrongdoer and ruthless man,
  5 For You are my ahope;
  O Lord IGOD, [You are] my bconfidence from my youth.
  6 IBy You I have been asustained from [my] birth;
  You are He who btook me from my mother’s womb;
  My cpraise is continually IIof You.

David, in confidence of faith, and experience of God's favour, prayeth both for himself, and against the enemies of his soul.

1 ¶ In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. 2 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me. 3 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. 4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. 5 For thou [art] my hope, O Lord GOD: [thou art] my trust from my youth. 6 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. 7 I am as a wonder unto many; but thou [art] my strong refuge. 8 Let my mouth be filled [with] thy praise [and with] thy honour all the day. 9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth. 10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together, 11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for [there is] none to deliver [him]. 12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help. 13 Let them be confounded [and] consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered [with] reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
