Amplified Bible

Psalm 61

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.

From 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].

For You have been a shelter and a refuge for me,
A strong tower against the enemy.

Let me dwell in Your tent forever;
Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.


For You have heard my vows, O God;
You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name [with reverence].

You will prolong the king’s life [adding days upon days];
His years will be like many generations.

He will sit enthroned forever before [the face of] God;
Appoint lovingkindness and truth to watch over and preserve him.

So I will sing praise to Your name forever,
Paying my vows day by day.
