Psalms 71


The LORD is Our Endurance

A psalm to David of the sons of Jonadab, and of the ones originally being taken captive.

Upon you, O  lord, I hoped. May I not be disgraced into the eon. In your righteousness rescue me, and take me! Lean [2to 3me 1your ear] and deliver me! Be to me for [2God 1a defending]! and for [2place 1a fortified] to deliver me. For [2my confirmation 3and 4my refuge 1you are]. O my God, rescue me from the hand of the sinner! from the hand of the one acting unlawfully and doing wrong. For you are my endurance, O Lord, O  lord, the one of my hope from my youth. [4upon 5you 3I stayed 1From 2the womb]; from the belly of my mother you are my shelterer. [3about 4you 1My singing praise 2is always]. [2as it were 3a miracle 1I was] to the many; but you are [3helper 1my 2fortified]. Let [2be filled 1my mouth] of praise! that I may praise in song of your glory; the entire day of your majesty. You should not throw me away in the time of old age; in the failing of my strength you should not abandon me.

Make The LORD Known to Each Generation

10 For [2spoke 1my enemies] against me; and the ones watching out for my life consulted together, 11 saying, God abandoned him; pursue and overtake him! for there is no one rescuing him. 12 O my God, you should be not far from me. O my God, [2to 3my help 1take heed]! 13 Let [4be shamed 5and 6fail 1the ones 2slandering 3my soul]! Let [5put on 6shame 7and 8remorse 1the ones 2seeking 3bad things 4for me]! 14 But I always shall hope upon you, and I will add upon all your praise. 15  My mouth shall announce your righteousness the entire day; your deliverance, for I did not know writings. 16 I will enter in the might of the  lord. O  lord, I will mention your righteousness only. 17 You taught me, O God, from my youth; and until now I will report your wonders. 18 Even until old age, and of a senior, O my God, you should not abandon me until whenever I should report your arm to [3generation 1every 2coming]; 19  of your might and of your righteousness, O God, unto the highests, what [2you did 3to me 1magnificence]. O God, who is likened to you? 20 As much as you showed to me -- [2afflictions 1many] and bad things; but turning, you restored life to me; and from out of the abysses of the earth you led me. 21 You abounded to me your greatness, and turning you comforted me; and from out of the abysses of the earth again you led me. 22 For also I will make acknowledgment to you among peoples, O  lord; with an instrument for a psalm of your truth, O God. I shall strum to you with the harp, O holy one of Israel. 23 [2shall exult 1My lips] whenever I should strum to you, and my soul which you ransomed. 24 But still also my tongue [3all 4the 5day 1shall meditate upon 2your righteousness], whenever [5should be ashamed 6and 7should feel remorse 1the ones 2seeking 3bad things 4for me].
