1: (To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.) In thee, Jehovah, do I trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. 2: Incline thine ear to me, deliver me speedily; be a strong rock to me, a house of defence to save me. 3: For thou art my rock and my fortress; and, for thy name's sake, thou wilt lead me and guide me. 4: Draw me out of the net that they have hidden for me; for thou art my strength. 5: Into thy hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, Jehovah, [thou] God of truth. 6: I have hated them that observe lying vanities; and as for me, I have confided in Jehovah. 7: I will be glad and rejoice in thy loving-kindness, for thou hast seen mine affliction; thou hast known the troubles of my soul, 8: And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large place. 9: Be gracious unto me, Jehovah, for I am in trouble: mine eye wasteth away with vexation, my soul and my belly. 10: For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength faileth through mine iniquity, and my bones are wasted. 11: More than to all mine oppressors, I am become exceedingly a reproach, even to my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that see me without flee from me. 12: I am forgotten in [their] heart as a dead man; I am become like a broken vessel. 13: For I have heard the slander of many -- terror on every side -- when they take counsel together against me: they plot to take away my life. 14: But I confided in thee, Jehovah; I said, thou art my God. 15: My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from my persecutors. 16: Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; save me in thy loving-kindness. 17: Jehovah, let me not be ashamed; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, let them be silent in Sheol. 18: Let the lying lips become dumb, which speak insolently against the righteous in pride and contempt. 19: [Oh] how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee, [which] thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee, before the sons of men! 20: Thou keepest them concealed in the secret of thy presence from the conspiracies of man; thou hidest them in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. 21: Blessed be Jehovah; for he hath shewn me wondrously his loving-kindness in a strong city. 22: As for me, I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes; nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee. 23: Love Jehovah, all ye his saints. Jehovah preserveth the faithful, and plentifully requiteth the proud doer. 24: Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all ye that hope in Jehovah.
