King James 2000
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1In you, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in your righteousness.
2Bow down your ear to me; deliver me speedily: be my strong rock, for a house of defense to save me.
3For you are my rock and my fortress; therefore for your name's sake lead me, and guide me.
4Pull me out of the net that they have laid secretly for me: for you are my strength.
5Into your hand I commit my spirit: you have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.
6I have hated them that regard vain idols: but I trust in the LORD.
7I will be glad and rejoice in your mercy: for you have considered my trouble; you have known my soul in adversities;
8And have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: you have set my feet in a wide place.
9Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: my eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my body.
10For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
11I was a reproach among all my enemies, but especially among my neighbors, and a horror to my acquaintance: they that did see me outside fled from me.
12I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
13For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.
14But I trusted in you, O LORD: I said, you are my God.
15My times are in your hand: deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from them that persecute me.
16Make your face to shine upon your servant: save me for your mercies' sake.
17Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon you: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.
18Let the lying lips be put to silence; who speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
19Oh how great is your goodness, which you have laid up for them that fear you; which you have wrought for them that trust in you before the sons of men!
20You shall hide them in the secret of your presence from the pride of man: you shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
21Blessed be the LORD: for he has showed me his marvelous kindness in a strong city.
22For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before your eyes: nevertheless you heard the voice of my supplications when I cried unto you.
23O love the LORD, all you his saints: for the LORD preserves the faithful, and plentifully repays the proud doer.
24Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in the LORD.
