Psalm 61 NCV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 God, hear my cry; listen to my prayer. 1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 I call to you from the ends of the earth when I am afraid. Carry me away to a high mountain. 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 been my protection, like a strong tower against my enemies. 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 Let me live in your Holy Tent forever. Let me find safety 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 God, you have heard my promises. You have given me what belongs to those who fear you. 5 For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Give the king a long life; let him live many years. 6 Increase the days of the king's life, his years for many generations.
7 Let him rule in the presence of God forever. Protect him with your love and truth. 7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 Then I will praise your name forever, and every day I will keep my promises. 8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.
