61 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
[To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David. ] לַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל־נְגִינַת לְדָוִד׃ Prayer for Protection. Psalm 61(v60)
Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
שִׁמְעָה אֱלֹהִים רִנָּתִי הַקְשִׁיבָה תְּפִלָּתִי׃  
from the end of the earth I call to thee, when my heart is faint.

Lead thou me to the rock that is higher than I;

מִקְצֵה הָאָרֶץ אֵלֶיךָ אֶקְרָא בַּעֲטֹף לִבִּי

בְּצוּר־יָרוּם מִמֶּנִּי תַנְחֵנִי׃

 
for thou art my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.
כִּי־הָיִיתָ מַחְסֶה לִי מִגְדַּל־עֹז מִפְּנֵי אֹויֵב׃  
Let me dwell in thy tent for ever!
Oh to be safe under the shelter of thy wings! [Selah]
אָגוּרָה בְאָהָלְךָ עֹולָמִים אֶחֱסֶה בְסֵתֶר כְּנָפֶיךָ סֶּלָה׃  
For thou, O God, hast heard my vows,
thou hast given me the heritage of those who fear thy name.
כִּי־אַתָּה אֱלֹהִים שָׁמַעְתָּ לִנְדָרָי נָתַתָּ יְרֻשַּׁת יִרְאֵי שְׁמֶךָ׃  
Prolong the life of the king;
may his years endure to all generations!
יָמִים עַל־יְמֵי־מֶלֶךְ תֹּוסִיף שְׁנֹותָיו כְּמֹו־דֹר וָדֹר׃  
May he be enthroned for ever before God;
bid steadfast love and faithfulness watch over him!
יֵשֵׁב עֹולָם לִפְנֵי אֱלֹהִים חֶסֶד וֶאֱמֶת מַן יִנְצְרֻהוּ׃  
So will I ever sing praises to thy name,
as I pay my vows day after day.
כֵּן אֲזַמְּרָה שִׁמְךָ לָעַד לְשַׁלְּמִי נְדָרַי יֹום יֹום׃  
      << | Psalms: 61 | >>
