Psalm 61

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Confidence in God’s Protection.

For the choir director; on a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David.

61 Hear my cry, O God;
Give heed to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a refuge for me,
A tower of strength [a]against the enemy.
Let me [b]dwell in Your tent forever;
Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. [c]Selah.

For You have heard my vows, O God;
You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name.
You will [d]prolong the king’s [e]life;
His years will be as many generations.
He will [f]abide before God forever;
Appoint lovingkindness and truth that they may preserve him.
So I will sing praise to Your name forever,
That I may pay my vows day by day.
