To the chief Musician. On a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David.
1Hear, O God#GodHebrew: Elohim my cry; attend unto my prayer. 2From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: thou wilt lead me on to a rock which is too high for me. 3For thou hast been a refuge for me, a strong tower from before the enemy. 4I will sojourn in thy tent for ever; I will take refuge in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
5For thou, O God#GodHebrew: Elohim hast heard my vows; thou hast given me the inheritance of those that fear thy name. 6Thou wilt add days to the days of the king: his years shall be as many generations. 7He shall abide before God#GodHebrew: Elohim for ever: bestow loving-kindness and truth, that they may preserve him. 8So will I sing forth thy name for ever, performing my vows from day to day.
