Psalm 61Common English Bible (CEB)

Psalm 61

For the music leader, with stringed instruments. Of David.

61 God, listen to my cry;
    pay attention to my prayer!
When my heart is weak,
    I cry out to you from the very ends of the earth.
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I am
    because you have been my refuge,
    a tower of strength in the face of the enemy.
Please let me live in your tent forever!
    Please let me take refuge
    in the shelter of your wings! Selah
Because you, God, have heard my promises;
    you’ve given me[a] the same possession
    as those who honor your name.

Add days to the king’s life!
    Let his years extend for many generations!
Let him be enthroned forever before God!
    Make it so love and faithfulness watch over him!
Then I will sing praises to your name forever,
    and I will do what I promised every single day.
