Psalm 61 NIRV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 God, hear my cry for help. Listen to my prayer. 1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 From a place far away I call out to you. I call out as my heart gets weaker. Lead me to the safety of a rock that is high above me. 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 You have always kept me safe from my enemies. You are like a strong tower to me. 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 I long to live in your holy tent forever. There I find safety in the shadow of your wings. "Selah" 4 I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. "Selah"
5 God, you have heard my promises. You have given me what belongs to those who worship you. 5 For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Add many days to the king's life. Let him live on and on for many years. 6 Increase the days of the king's life, his years for many generations.
7 May he always enjoy your blessing as he rules. Let your love and truth keep him safe. 7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 Then I will always sing praise to you. I will keep my promises day after day. 8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.
