2 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline (lean over) thine ear unto me, and save me.
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.
5 For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth.
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.
8 Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
13 Let them be confounded (confused) and consumed that are adversaries (enemies) to my soul; let them be covered with reproach (disgrace)and dishonour that seek my hurt.
15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
18 Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded (confused), for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
