Psalm 61 ASV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Hear my cry, O God; Attend unto my prayer. 1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For thou hast been a refuge for me, A strong tower from the enemy. 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 I will dwell in thy tabernacle for ever: I will take refuge in the covert of thy wings. [Selah 4 I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. "Selah"
5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: Thou hast given [me] the heritage of those that fear thy name. 5 For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Thou wilt prolong the king's life; His years shall be as many generations. 6 Increase the days of the king's life, his years for many generations.
7 He shall abide before God for ever: Oh prepare lovingkindness and truth, that they may preserve him. 7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, That I may daily perform my vows. 8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.
