9Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone. 10For my enemies speak against me; those who wait to kill me conspire together. 11They say, “God has forsaken him; pursue him and seize him, for no one will rescue him.” 12Do not be far from me, my God; come quickly, God, to help me. 13May my accusers perish in shame; may those who want to harm me be covered with scorn and disgrace. 14As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. 15My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds, of your saving acts all day long— though I know not how to relate them all. 16I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, Sovereign Lord; I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone. 17Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. 18Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.
