Psalms 61

Overview

Psalms 61:1, David flees to God upon his former experience; Psalms 61:4, He vows perpetual service unto him, because of his promises.

Instead of neginath , many manuscripts, have neginoth ; and two manuscripts, supply mizmor , “a Psalm.” Some suppose this Psalm was composed when David was driven by Absalom’s rebellion beyond Jordan, and from the sanctuary of God. Psalms 4:1, Psalms 6:1, Psalms 54:1, Psalms 55:1 *titles
