The Message

Psalm 61

A David Psalm

11-2 God, listen to me shout,
    bend an ear to my prayer.
When I’m far from anywhere,
    down to my last gasp,
I call out, “Guide me
    up High Rock Mountain!”

3-5 You’ve always given me breathing room,
    a place to get away from it all,
A lifetime pass to your safe-house,
    an open invitation as your guest.
You’ve always taken me seriously, God,
    made me welcome among those who know and love you.

6-8 Let the days of the king add up
    to years and years of good rule.
Set his throne in the full light of God;
    post Steady Love and Good Faith as lookouts,
And I’ll be the poet who sings your glory—
    and live what I sing every 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。
