Psalm 25:20-22 New English Translation (NET Bible)

20 Protect me[a] and deliver me!
Please do not let me be humiliated,
for I have taken shelter in you.
21 May integrity and godliness protect me,
for I rely on you.
22 O God, rescue[b] Israel
from all their distress![c]


  1. Psalm 25:20 tn Or “my life.”
  2. Psalm 25:22 tn Or “redeem.”
  3. Psalm 25:22 tn Heb “his distresses.”sn O God, rescue Israel from all their distress. It is possible that the psalmist speaks on behalf of the nation throughout this entire psalm. Another option is that v. 22 is a later addition to the psalm which applies an original individual lament to the covenant community. If so, it may reflect an exilic setting.
