2 Save me and rescue me, for you do what is right.
Turn your ear to listen to me, and set me free.
3 Be my rock of safety where I can always hide.
Give the order to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
12 O God, don’t stay away.
My God, please hurry to help me.
14 But I will keep on hoping for your help;
I will praise you more and more.
19 Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the highest heavens.
You have done such wonderful things.
Who can compare with you, O God?
22 Then I will praise you with music on the harp,
because you are faithful to your promises, O my God.
I will sing praises to you with a lyre,
O Holy One of Israel.
23 I will shout for joy and sing your praises,
for you have ransomed me.
Psalm 71 NLT
