1 In thee, O Lord, I trust: let me never be
2 Rescue me and deliver me in thy
righteousness: incline thine ear unto me and
3 Be thou my strong rock, whereunto I may
always 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 evil and cruel man.
5 For thou art mine hope, O Lord God, even my
trust from my youth.
6 Upon thee have I been stayed from the womb:
thou art he that took me out of my mother’s bowels:
my praise shall be always of thee.
7 I am become as it were a monster unto many:
but thou art my sure trust.
8 Let my mouth be filled with thy praise, and
with thy glory every day.
9 Cast me not off in the time of age: forsake me
not when my strength faileth.
10 For mine enemies speak of me, and they that
lay wait for my soul, take their counsel together,
11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: pursue and
take him, for there is none to deliver him.
12 Go not far from me, O God: my God haste
thee to help me.
13 Let them be confounded and consumed that
are against my soul: let them be covered with reproof
and confusion, that seek mine hurt.
14 But I will wait continually, and will praise thee
more and more.
15 My mouth shall daily rehearse thy righteousness,
and thy salvation: for I know not the number.
16 I will go forward in the strength of the Lord
God, and will make mention of thy righteousness,
even of thine only.
17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth
even until now: therefore will I tell of thy wondrous
18 Yea even unto mine old age and gray head, O
God: forsake me not, until I have declared thine arm
unto this generation, and thy power to all them that
19 And thy righteousness, O God, I will exalt on
high: for thou hast done great things: O God, who
is like unto thee!
20 Which hast showed me great troubles and
adversities, but thou wilt return and revive me, and
wilt come again, and take me up from the depth of
21 Thou wilt increase mine honor, and return and
22 Therefore will I praise thee for thy faithfulness,
O God, upon instrument and viol: unto thee will I
sing upon the harp, O Holy one of Israel.
23 My lips will rejoice when I sing unto thee, and
my soul which thou hast delivered.
24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness
daily: for they are confounded and brought unto
shame, that seek mine hurt.
