1: In you, Yahweh, I take refuge. Never let me be disappointed. 2: Deliver me in your righteousness, and rescue me. Turn your ear to me, and save me. 3: Be to me a rock of refuge to which I may always go. Give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. 4: Rescue me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. 5: For you are my hope, Lord Yahweh; my confidence from my youth. 6: I have relied on you from the womb. You are he who took me out of my mother's womb. I will always praise you. 7: I am a marvel to many, but you are my strong refuge. 8: My mouth shall be filled with your praise, with your honor all the day. 9: Don't reject me in my old age. Don't forsake me when my strength fails. 10: For my enemies talk about me. Those who watch for my soul conspire together, 11: saying, "God has forsaken him. Pursue and take him, for no one will rescue him." 12: God, don't be far from me. My God, hurry to help me. 13: Let my accusers be disappointed and consumed. Let them be covered with disgrace and scorn who want to harm me. 14: But I will always hope, and will add to all of your praise. 15: My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day, though I don't know its full measure. 16: I will come with the mighty acts of the Lord Yahweh. I will make mention of your righteousness, even of yours alone. 17: God, you have taught me from my youth. Until now, I have declared your wondrous works. 18: Yes, even when I am old and gray-haired, God, don't forsake me, until I have declared your strength to the next generation, your might to everyone who is to come. 19: Your righteousness also, God, reaches to the heavens; you have done great things. God, who is like you? 20: You, who have shown us many and bitter troubles, you will let me live. You will bring us up again from the depths of the earth. 21: Increase my honor, and comfort me again. 22: I will also praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God. I sing praises to you with the lyre, Holy One of Israel. 23: My lips shall shout for joy! My soul, which you have redeemed, sings praises to you! 24: My tongue will also talk about your righteousness all day long, for they are disappointed, and they are confounded, who want to harm me. Psalm 72 By Solomon.
