> Chapter 61
Confidence in Gods Protection.
For the choir director; on a stringed instrument.
Hear my cry, O God;
Give heed to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a refuge for me,
A tower of strength against the enemy.
Let me dwell in Your tent forever;
Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings.
For You have heard my vows, O God;
You have given
the inheritance of those who fear Your name.
You will prolong the kings life;
His years will be as many generations.
He will abide before God forever;
Appoint lovingkindness and truth that they may preserve him.
So I will sing praise to Your name forever,
That I may pay my vows day by day.

David flees to God upon his former experience
He vows perpetual service unto him, because of his promises
