Young's Literal Translation
Psalms, Chapter 71

   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, Till 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!
