71:5 For you give me confidence, O Lord;
O Lord, I have trusted in you since I was young.
71:6 I have leaned on you since birth;
you pulled me from my mother’s womb.
I praise you continually.
71:17 O God, you have taught me since I was young,
and I am still declaring your amazing deeds.
71:18 Even when I am old and gray,
O God, do not abandon me,
until I tell the next generation about your strength,
and those coming after me about your power.
