(A psalm by David for the music leader.)

A Prayer for Protection

31 I come to you, Lord,
for protection.
    Don’t let me be ashamed.
    Do as you have promised
    and rescue me.
Listen to my prayer
    and hurry to save me.
Be my mighty rock[a]
    and the fortress
    where I am safe.

You, Lord God,
are my mighty rock
    and my fortress.
Lead me and guide me,
    so that your name
    will be honored.
Protect me from hidden traps
    and keep me safe.
You are faithful,
    and I trust you
    because you rescued me.
