New International Version

1In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame. 2Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness; turn your ear to me and save me. 3Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. 4Deliver me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of evil and cruel men. 5For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. 6From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother's womb. I will ever praise you. 7I have become like a portent to many, but you are my strong refuge. 8My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long. 9Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone. 10For my enemies speak against me; those who wait to kill me conspire together. 11They say, "God has forsaken him; pursue him and seize him, for no one will rescue him." 12Be not far from me, O God; come quickly, O my God, to help me. 13May my accusers perish in shame; may those who want to harm me be covered with scorn and disgrace. 14But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
Psalms 71:1-14 (NIV)
