Psalm 61-63

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Psalm 61

Hear my cry, O Elohim;

Attend to my prayer.

2 From the end of the earth will I call to you, when my heart is overwhelmed:

lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3 For you have been a refuge for me,

A strong tower from the enemy.

4 I will dwell in your tabernacle forever:

I will take refuge in the covert of your wings.


5 For you, O Elohim, have heard my vows:

You have given me the heritage of those that fear your name.

6 You will prolong the king’s life;

His years shall be as many generations.

7 He shall remain before Elohim forever:

Oh prepare lovingkindness and truth, that they may preserve him.

8 So will I sing praise to your name for ever,

That I may daily perform my vows.



For the Chief Musician; after the manner of Jeduthun.

A Psalm of David.


Psalm 62

My soul waits in silence for Elohim only:

From him comes my salvation.

2 He only is my rock and my salvation:

He is my high tower; I shall not be greatly moved.

3 How long will you set upon a man,

That you may kill him, all of you,

Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

4 They only consult to thrust him down from his dignity;

They delight in lies;

They bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly.


5 My soul, wait in silence for Elohim only;

For my expectation is from him.

6 He only is my rock and my salvation:

He is my high tower; I shall not be moved.

7 With Elohim is my salvation and my glory:

The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in Elohim.

8 Trust in him at all times, you people;

Pour out your heart before him:

Elohim is a refuge for us.


9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie:

In the balances they will go up;

They are together lighter than vanity.

10 Trust not in oppression,

And become not vain in robbery:

If riches increase, set not your heart on them.

11 Elohim has spoken once,

Twice have I heard this;

That power belongs to Elohim:

12 Also to you, O Yahweh, belongs lovingkindness;

For you render to every man according to his work.



Psalm 63


O Elohim, you are my El; earnestly will I seek you:

My soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you,

In a dry and weary land, where no water is.

2 So have I looked upon you in the sanctuary,

To see your power and your glory.

3 Because your lovingkindness is better than life,

My lips shall praise you.

4 So will I bless you while I live:

I will lift up my hands in your name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness;

And my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips;

6 When I remember you upon my bed.

And meditate on you in the night-watches.

7 For you have been my help,

And in the shadow of your wings will I rejoice.

8 My soul follows hard after you:

Your right hand upholds me.

9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it,

Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

10 They shall be given over to the power of the sword:

They shall be a portion for foxes.

11 But the king shall rejoice in Elohim:

Every one that swears by him shall glory;

for the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.



For the Chief Musician.
