|New International Version (© 2011)|
Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
King James Bible
Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
American Standard Version
Be thou to me a rock of habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: Thou hast given commandment to save me; For thou art my rock and my fortress.
Young's Literal Translation
Be to me for a rock -- a habitation, To go in continually, Thou hast given command to save me, For my rock and my bulwark art Thou.
Psalm 71:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Be thou my strong habitation - Instead of מען maon, habitation, many of Kennicott's and De Rossi's MSS. read מעז maoz, munition or defense. Be thou my rock of defense.
Thou hast given commandment to save me - Thou hast determined my escape, and hast ordered thy angels to guard me. See Psalm 91:11, Psalm 91:12.
