To the chief Musician upon Neginah, A Psalm of David.
A. 1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 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.
3 For thou hast been a shelter for me,
and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide (gur) in thy tabernacle for ever:
I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
A’. 5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows:
thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
6 Thou wilt prolong the king’s life: and his years as many generations.
7 He shall abide (yasab) before God for ever:
O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.
8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever,
that I may daily perform my vows.
