Psalms 61 - KJV

The prayer of a troubled heart

To the chief Musician upon Neginah, A Psalm of David.

1 Hear my cry, O God; Attend unto my prayer.

2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, And Prov. 18:10a strong tower from the enemy.

4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: Ps. 91:4I will [a]trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: Thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.

6 [b]Thou wilt prolong the king's life: And his years [c]as many generations.

7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy Ps. 40:11and truth, which may preserve him.

8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, That I may daily perform my vows.


a. Psalms 61:4 Or, make my refuge
b. Psalms 61:6 Heb. Thou shalt add days to the days of the king
c. Psalms 61:6 Heb. as generation and generation
