Ketuvim - Writings


Chapter 61

1 For the Leader; with string-music. A Psalm of David.
2 Hear my cry, O G-d; attend unto my prayer.
3 From the end of the earth will I call unto Thee, when my heart fainteth; lead me to a rock that is too high for me.
4 For Thou hast been a refuge for me, a tower of strength in the face of the enemy.
5 I will dwell in Thy Tent for ever; I will take refuge in the covert of Thy wings. Selah
6 For Thou, O G-d, hast heard my vows; Thou hast granted the heritage of those that fear Thy name.
7 Mayest Thou add days unto the king's days! May his years be as many generations!
8 May he be enthroned before G-d for ever! Appoint mercy and truth, that they may preserve him.
9 So will I sing praise unto Thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
