ContextIn You, O Lord, I Take Refuge
1In you, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. 2Deliver me in your righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline your ear to me, and save me. 3Be you my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: you have given commandment to save me; for you are my rock and my fortress. 4Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. 5For you are my hope, O Lord GOD: you are my trust from my youth. 6By you have I been held up from the womb: you are he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of you. 7I am as a wonder to many; but you are my strong refuge. 8Let my mouth be filled with your praise and with your honor all the day. 9Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength fails. 10For my enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together, 11Saying, God has forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him. 12O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help. 13Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonor that seek my hurt. 14But I will hope continually, and will yet praise you more and more. 15My mouth shall show forth your righteousness and your salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof. 16I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of your righteousness, even of your only. 17O God, you have taught me from my youth: and till now have I declared your wondrous works. 18Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed your strength to this generation, and your power to every one that is to come. 19Your righteousness also, O God, is very high, who have done great things: O God, who is like to you! 20You, which have showed me great and sore troubles, shall quicken me again, and shall bring me up again from the depths of the earth. 21You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side. 22I will also praise you with the psaltery, even your truth, O my God: to you will I sing with the harp, O you Holy One of Israel. 23My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to you; and my soul, which you have redeemed. 24My tongue also shall talk of your righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought to shame, that seek my hurt.
