6 From birth I have relied on you;
you brought me forth from my mother’s womb.
I will ever praise you.

pursue him and seize him,
for no one will rescue him.”
12 Do not be far from me, my God;
come quickly, God, to help me.

Who is like you, God?

from the depths of the earth
you will again bring me up.
21 You will increase my honor
and comfort me once more.
for your faithfulness, my God;
I will sing praise to you with the lyre,
Holy One of Israel.
when I sing praise to you—
I whom you have delivered.
all day long,
for those who wanted to harm me
have been put to shame and confusion.
