Psalm 61Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

To the director: With stringed instruments. A song of David.

61 God, hear my cry for help.
    Listen to my prayer.
From a faraway land I call to you for help.
    I feel so weak and helpless!
Carry me to a high rock
    where no one can reach me.
You are my place of safety,
    a strong tower that protects me from my enemies.
I want to live in your tent[a] forever.
    I want to hide where you can protect me. Selah

God, you heard what I promised to give you,
    but everything your worshipers have comes from you.
Give the king a long life.
    Let him live forever!
Let him rule in your presence forever.
    Protect him with your faithful love.
Then I will praise your name forever.
    Every day I will do what I promised.


  1. Psalm 61:4 tent The place where God lives among his people. Here, it is the Temple in Jerusalem. See “Holy Tent” and “Temple” in the Word List.
