      Ps 61:1-8. Neginah--or, Neginoth (see on Ps 4:1, title). Separated from his usual spiritual privileges, perhaps by Absalom's rebellion, the Psalmist prays for divine aid, and, in view of past mercies, with great confidence of being heard.

      1-3. From the end--that is, places remote from the sanctuary (De 28:64).

      2. heart is overwhelmed--literally, "covered over with darkness," or, "distress."
      to the rock-- (Ps 18:2; 40:2).
      higher than I--which otherwise I cannot ascend.

      3. shelter . . . and strong tower--repeat the same sentiment.

      4. I will abide--So I desire to do (compare Ps 23:6).
      trust in the covert, &c.--make my refuge, in the shadow (compare Ps 17:8; 36:7).

      5. the heritage--or, part in the spiritual blessings of Israel (Ps 21:2-4).
      vows--implies prayers.

      6, 7. the king--himself and his royal line ending in Christ. Mercy and truth personified, as in Ps 40:11; 57:3.

      7. abide before God--literally, "sit as a king in God's presence," under His protection.

      8. Thus for new blessings will new vows of praise ever be paid.
