A Prayer for God's Protection
71
1 I run to you, Lord,
for protection.
Don't disappoint me.
71 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
1 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
2 You do what is right,
so come to my rescue.
Listen to my prayer
and keep me safe.
2 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
3 Be my mighty rock,
n 71.3 mighty rock: See the note at 18.2.
the place
where I can always run
for protection.
Save me by your command!
You are my mighty rock
and my fortress.
3 Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
Be...: Heb. Be thou to me for a rock of habitation

4 Come and save me, Lord God,
from vicious and cruel
and brutal enemies!
4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
5 I depend on you,
and I have trusted you
since I was young.
5 For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
6 I have relied on you
o 71.6 I ... you: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
from the day I was born.
You brought me safely
through birth,
and I always praise you.
6 By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.

7 Many people think of me
as something evil.
But you are my mighty protector,
7 I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
8 and I praise and honor you
all day long.
8 Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
9 Don't throw me aside
when I am old;
don't desert me
when my strength is gone.
9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
10 My enemies are plotting
because they want me dead.
10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
lay...: Heb. watch, or, observe
11 They say, “Now we'll catch you!
God has deserted you,
and no one can save you.”
11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
12 Come closer, God!
Please hurry and help.
12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
13 Embarrass and destroy
all who want me dead;
disgrace and confuse
all who want to hurt me.
13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
14 I will never give up hope
or stop praising you.
14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
15 All day long I will tell
the wonderful things you do
to save your people.
But you have done much more
than I could possibly know.
15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
16 I will praise you, Lord God,
for your mighty deeds
and your power to save.
16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.

17 You have taught me
since I was a child,
and I never stop telling about
your marvelous deeds.
17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
18 Don't leave me when I am old
and my hair turns gray.
Let me tell future generations
about your mighty power.
18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
when...: Heb. unto old age and gray hairs
thy strength: Heb. thine arm
19 Your deeds of kindness
are known in the heavens.
No one is like you!
19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!

20 You made me suffer a lot,
but you will bring me
back from this deep pit
and give me new life.
20 Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
21 You will make me truly great
and take my sorrow away.
21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.

22 I will praise you, God,
the Holy One of Israel.
You are faithful.
I will play the harp
and sing your praises.
22 I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
the psaltery: Heb. the instrument of psaltery
23 You have rescued me!
I will celebrate and shout,
singing praises to you
with all my heart.
23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
24 All day long I will announce
your power to save.
I will tell how you disgraced
and disappointed
those
who wanted to hurt me.
24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
