Psalm 31:1-4 Good News Translation (GNT)

A Prayer of Trust in God[a]

31 I come to you, Lord, for protection;
    never let me be defeated.
You are a righteous God;
    save me, I pray!
Hear me! Save me now!
Be my refuge to protect me;
    my defense to save me.

You are my refuge and defense;
    guide me and lead me as you have promised.
Keep me safe from the trap that has been set for me;
    shelter me from danger.
