Psalms 61:3-4

Context

61:3 Indeed, 1  you are 2  my shelter,

a strong tower that protects me from the enemy. 3 

61:4 I will be a permanent guest in your home; 4 

I will find shelter in the protection of your wings. 5  (Selah)

1 tn Or “for.”

2 tn Or “have been.”

3 tn Heb “a strong tower from the face of an enemy.”

4 tn Heb “I will live as a resident alien in your tent permanently.” The cohortative is understood here as indicating resolve. Another option is to take it as expressing a request, “please let me live” (cf. NASB, NRSV).

5 sn I will find shelter in the protection of your wings. The metaphor compares God to a protective mother bird.
