Psalm 61
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

Confidence in God’s Protection.

To the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1Hear my cry, O God;

Listen to my prayer.

2From the end of the earth I call to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and weak;

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I [a rock that is too high to reach without Your help].

3For You have been a shelter and a refuge for me,

A strong tower against the enemy.

4Let me dwell in Your tent forever;

Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.

5For You have heard my vows, O God;

You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name [with reverence].

6You will prolong the king’s life [adding days upon days];

His years will be like many generations.

7He will sit enthroned forever before [the face of] God;

Appoint lovingkindness and truth to watch over and preserve him.

8So I will sing praise to Your name forever,

Paying my vows day by day.
