Psalm 71 (WEBP)

[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 day long.
[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] God, your righteousness also 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.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 71 (YLT)

[1] In Thee, O Jehovah, I have trusted, Let me not be ashamed to the age.
[2] In Thy righteousness Thou dost deliver me, And dost cause me to escape, Incline unto me Thine ear, and save me.
[3] Be to me for a rock-a habitation, To go in continually, Thou hast given command to save me, For my rock and my bulwark art Thou.
[4] O my God, cause me to escape From the hand of the wicked, From the hand of the perverse and violent.
[5] For Thou art my hope, O Lord Jehovah, My trust from my youth.
[6] By Thee I have been supported from the womb, From my mother’s bowels Thou dost cut me out, In Thee is my praise continually.
[7] As a wonder I have been to many, And Thou art my strong refuge.
[8] Filled is my mouth with Thy praise, All the day with Thy beauty.
[9] Cast me not off at the time of old age, According to the consumption of my power forsake me not.
[10] For mine enemies have spoken against me, And those watching my soul have taken counsel together,
[11] Saying, ‘God hath forsaken him, Pursue and catch him, for there is no deliverer.’
[12] O God, be not far from me, O my God, for my help make haste.
[13] They are ashamed, they are consumed, Who are opposing my soul, They are covered with reproach and blushing, who are seeking my evil,
[14] And I continually do wait with hope, And have added unto all Thy praise.
[15] My mouth recounteth Thy righteousness, All the day Thy salvation, For I have not known the numbers.
[16] I come in the might of the Lord Jehovah, I mention Thy righteousness-Thine only.
[17] God, Thou hast taught me from my youth, And hitherto I declare Thy wonders.
[18] And also unto old age and grey hairs, O God, forsake me not, T ll I declare Thy strength to a generation, To every one that cometh Thy might.
[19] And Thy righteousness, O God, is unto the heights, Because Thou hast done great things, O God, who is like Thee?
[20] Because Thou hast showed me many and sad distresses, Thou turnest back-Thou revivest me, And from the depths of the earth, Thou turnest back-Thou bringest me up.
[21] Thou dost increase my greatness, And Thou surroundest-Thou comfortest me,
[22] I also thank Thee with a vessel of psaltery, Thy truth, O my God, I sing to Thee with a harp, O Holy One of Israel,
[23] My lips cry aloud when I sing praise to Thee, And my soul that Thou hast redeemed,
[24] My tongue also all the day uttereth Thy righteousness, Because ashamed-because confounded, Have been those seeking my evil!
