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.

Salmos 61

Al director musical. Acompáñese con instrumentos de cuerda. De David.

1Oh Dios, escucha mi clamor
    y atiende a mi oración.

Desde los confines de la tierra te invoco,
    pues mi corazón desfallece;
    llévame a una roca donde esté yo a salvo.
Porque tú eres mi refugio,
    mi baluarte contra el enemigo.

Anhelo habitar en tu casa para siempre
    y refugiarme debajo de tus alas. Selah
Tú, oh Dios, has aceptado mis votos
    y me has dado la heredad de quienes te honran.

Concédele al rey más años de vida;
    que sean sus días una eternidad.
Que reine siempre en tu presencia,
    y que tu amor y tu verdad lo protejan.
Así cantaré siempre salmos a tu nombre
    y cumpliré mis votos día tras día.
