Psalms 61

From {a} the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock [that] is {b} higher than I.

(a) From the place where I was banished, being driven out of the city and temple by my son Absalom. (b) To which without your help I cannot attain.
For thou, O God, {c} hast heard my vows: thou hast given [me] the heritage of those that fear thy name.

(c) There is nothing that strengthens our faith more than the memory of God's help in times past.
Thou wilt prolong the king's {d} life: [and] his years as many generations.

(d) This chiefly refers to Christ, who lives eternally not only in himself but also in his members.
He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare {e} mercy and truth, [which] may preserve him.

(e) For the stability of my kingdom stands in your mercy and truth.
