Psalm 61 World English Bible (WEB)

For the Chief Musician. For a stringed instrument. By David.

61 Hear my cry, God.
    Listen to my prayer.
From the end of the earth, I will call to you, when my heart is overwhelmed.
    Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been a refuge for me,
    a strong tower from the enemy.
I will dwell in your tent forever.
    I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
Selah.
For you, God, have heard my vows.
    You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
You will prolong the king’s life;
    his years shall be for generations.
He shall be enthroned in God’s presence forever.
    Appoint your loving kindness and truth, that they may preserve him.
So I will sing praise to your name forever,
    that I may fulfill my vows daily.

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.
