Psalm 70-7121st Century King James Version (KJ21)
70 Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord!
2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul; let them be turned backward and put to confusion that desire my hurt.
3 Let them be turned back as a reward for their shame that say, “Aha, aha!”
4 Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee; and let such as love Thy salvation say continually, “Let God be magnified!”
5 But I am poor and needy; make haste unto me, O God. Thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.
71 In Thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be put to confusion.
2 Deliver me in Thy righteousness, and cause me to escape; incline Thine ear unto me, and save me.
3 Be Thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort; Thou hast given commandment to save me, for Thou art my rock and my fortress.
4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
5 For Thou art my hope, O Lord God; Thou art my trust from my youth.
6 By Thee have I been held from the womb; Thou art He that took me out of my mother’s womb. My praise shall be continually of Thee.
7 I am as a wonder unto many, but Thou art my strong refuge.
8 Let my mouth be filled with Thy praise, and with Thy honor all the day.
9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
10 For mine enemies speak against me, and they that lie in wait for my soul take counsel together,
11 saying, “God hath forsaken him; persecute and take him, for there is none to deliver him.”
12 O God, be not far from me; O my God, make haste to help me.
13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonor that seek my hurt.
14 But I will hope continually and will yet praise Thee more and more.
15 My mouth shall show forth Thy righteousness and Thy salvation all the day, for I know not the numbers thereof.
16 I will go in the strength of the Lord God; I will make mention of Thy righteousness, even of Thine only.
17 O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth, and hitherto have I declared Thy wondrous works.
18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not, until I have shown Thy strength unto this generation and Thy power to every one that is to come.
19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things. O God, who is like unto Thee!
20 Thou, who hast shown me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
22 I will also praise Thee with the psaltery for Thy truth, O my God; unto Thee will I sing with the harp, O Thou Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto Thee, and my soul which Thou hast redeemed.
24 My tongue also shall talk of Thy righteousness all the day long; for they are confounded, for they are brought to shame that seek my hurt.
Romans 8:22-3921st Century King James Version (KJ21)
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by hope; but hope that is seen is not hope, for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for it?
25 But if we hope for that which we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities; for we know not what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover, whom He predestined, those He also called; and whom He called, those He also justified; and whom He justified, those He also glorified.
31 What then shall we say of these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay anything to the charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ who died, yea rather, who is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written: “For Thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
