To the chief Musician upon Neginah [or, a stringed instrument] A Psalm of David.
Hear my cry, O Elohim; attend unto my prayer.
From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in thy tabernacle forever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
For thou, O Elohim, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name. Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations.
He shall abide before Elohim forever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.
So will I sing praise unto thy name forever, that I may daily perform my vows.
61:1-5 Cry to and faith in Elohim; 6,7 Thou wilt bless the king, 8 so shall I praise forever.
