Psalm 61 CEB/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 God, listen to my cry; pay attention to my prayer! 1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 When my heart is weak, I cry out to you from the very ends of the earth. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I am 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 because you have been my refuge, a tower of strength in the face of the enemy. 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 Please let me live in your tent forever! Please let me take refuge in the shelter of your wings! Selah 4 I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. "Selah"
5 Because you, God, have heard my promises; you've given me the same possession as those who honor your name. 5 For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Add days to the king's life! Let his years extend for many generations! 6 Increase the days of the king's life, his years for many generations.
7 Let him be enthroned forever before God! Make it so love and faithfulness watch over him! 7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 Then I will sing praises to your name forever, and I will do what I promised every single day. 8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.
