Psalm 61

Psalm 61

For the director of music. A psalm of David to be played on stringed instruments.

God, hear my cry for help.
    Listen to my prayer.

From a place far away I call out to you.
    I call out as my heart gets weaker.
    Lead me to the safety of a rock that is high above me.
You have always kept me safe from my enemies.
    You are like a strong tower to me.

I long to live in your holy tent forever.
    There I find safety in the shadow of your wings.
God, you have heard my promises.
    You have given me what belongs to those who worship you.

Add many days to the king’s life.
    Let him live on and on for many years.
May he always enjoy your blessing as he rules.
    Let your love and truth keep him safe.

Then I will always sing praise to you.
    I will keep my promises day after 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。
