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
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.

14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee
more and more.
15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy
salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make
mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto
have I declared thy wondrous works.
18 Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me
not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation,
and thy power to every one that is to come.
19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast
done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!
20 Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt
quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the
depths of the earth.
21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every

truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou
Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and
my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
24 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.
