Psalms 61:1-8

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • God, a strong tower against enemies

    • “I will be a guest in your tent” (4)

To the director; to be accompanied with stringed instruments. Of David. 61  Hear, O God, my cry for help. Do pay attention to my prayer.+   From the ends of the earth I will cry out to you When my heart is in despair.*+ Lead me onto a rock that is higher than I am.+   For you are my refuge, A strong tower that protects me from the enemy.+   I will be a guest in your tent forever;+ I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings.+ (Selah)   For you, O God, have heard my vows. You have given me the inheritance belonging to those who fear your name.+   You will add days to the life* of the king,+ And his years will be from generation to generation.   He will sit enthroned* forever before God;+ Grant him* loyal love and faithfulness, so that these may safeguard him.+   Then I will sing praises* to your name forever+ As I pay my vows day after day.+
