Psalm 61:4 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I will abide in thy tabernacle - The greater portion of those Psalms which were composed during and after the captivity, says Calmet, had Levites and priests for their authors.

There I shall sojourn; - there I shall dwell, - be at rest, - be in safety, - be covered with thy wings, as a bird in its nest is covered with the wings of its mother. These simple comparisons, drawn from rural affairs and ordinary occurrences, are more pleasing and consolatory in the circumstances in question, than allegories derived from subjects the most noble and sublime.

May the LORD repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge."
A psalm of David. LORD, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain?
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
