Yahweh Is a Fortress

For the music director. A psalm of David.[a]

31 In you, O Yahweh, I have taken refuge.
Let me not be put to shame ever.
Deliver me by your righteousness.
Incline your ear to me.
Quickly deliver me.
Become my rock of refuge,
a fortified keep[b] to save me.
For you are my rock and my fortress.
So, for the sake of your name,
lead me and guide me.
