Bible: Psalm 61

Psalm 61 1 

61:1 For the music director; to be played on a stringed instrument; written by David.

O God, hear my cry for help!

Pay attention to my prayer!

61:2 From the most remote place on earth 2 

I call out to you in my despair. 3 

Lead me 4  up to an inaccessible rocky summit! 5 

61:3 Indeed, 6  you are 7  my shelter,

a strong tower that protects me from the enemy. 8 

61:4 I will be a permanent guest in your home; 9 

I will find shelter in the protection of your wings. 10  (Selah)

61:5 For you, O God, hear my vows;

you grant me the reward that belongs to your loyal followers. 11 

61:6 Give the king long life!

Make his lifetime span several generations! 12 

61:7 May he reign 13  forever before God!

Decree that your loyal love and faithfulness should protect him. 14 

61:8 Then I will sing praises to your name continually, 15 

as I fulfill 16  my vows day after day.
