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.

詩篇 61

祈求上帝保護

大衛作的訓誨詩,交給樂長,用弦樂器。

1上帝啊,求你傾聽我的呼求,
垂聽我的禱告!
我心裡沮喪之時,
從地極呼求你,
求你領我到高高的磐石上。
因為你是我的避難所,
是我抗敵的堅壘。
我要永遠住在你的聖幕裡,
在你翅膀下得蔭庇!(細拉)
上帝啊,你已經聽見我的誓言,
把你賜給敬畏你名之人的產業賜給我。
願你延長王的壽命,
使他的年日恆久。
願他在你的護佑下永遠做王,
求你以慈愛和信實來保護他。
我要永遠歌頌你的名,
天天還我許的願。
