Psalms

Chapter 61

1

1 For the leader; with stringed instruments. Of David.

2

Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer!

3

2 From the brink of Sheol I call; my heart grows faint. Raise me up, set me on a rock,

4

for you are my refuge, a tower of strength against the foe.

5

Then I will ever dwell in your tent, take refuge in the shelter of your wings. Selah

6

3 O God, when you accept my vows and hear the plea of those who revere your name in prayer:

7

“Add to the days of the king’s life; may his years be many generations;

8

May he reign before God forever; may your love and fidelity preserve him” – 

9

4 Then I will sing your name forever, fulfill my vows day after day.

1 [Psalm 61] A lament of the king who feels himself at the brink of death ( Psalm 61:3) and cries out for the strong and saving presence of God ( Psalm 61:3b-5). The king cites the prayer being made for him ( Psalm 61:7-8), and promises to give thanks to God.

2 [3] Brink of Sheol: literally, “edge of the earth,” “earth” being taken in its occasional meaning “the underworld.” Cf  Jonah 2:3.

3 [6] In prayer: added for sense.  Psalm 61:7-8 express the plea of  Psalm 61:6.

4 [9] Then: Hebrew “just as,” i.e., in accord with the vows referred to in  Psalm 61:5.
