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.

诗篇 61

祈求上帝保护

大卫作的训诲诗,交给乐长,用弦乐器。

1上帝啊,求你倾听我的呼求,
垂听我的祷告!
我心里沮丧之时,
从地极呼求你,
求你领我到高高的磐石上。
因为你是我的避难所,
是我抗敌的坚垒。
我要永远住在你的圣幕里,
在你翅膀下得荫庇!(细拉)
上帝啊,你已经听见我的誓言,
把你赐给敬畏你名之人的产业赐给我。
愿你延长王的寿命,
使他的年日恒久。
愿他在你的护佑下永远做王,
求你以慈爱和信实来保护他。
我要永远歌颂你的名,
天天还我许的愿。
