Psalms 61

To the chief Musician upon Neginah, A Psalm of David.


Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer.
2From the end of the earth will I cry to thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. 4I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the shelter of thy wings. Selah.
trust: or, make my refuge

5For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name. 6Thou wilt prolong the king’s life: and his years as many generations.
Thou...: Heb. Thou shalt add days to the days of the king
as...: Heb. as generation and generation
7He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him. 8So will I sing praise to thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
