Psalm 61:6-7 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Give the king long life.
Make his lifetime span several generations.[a]
May he reign[b] forever before God.
Decree that your loyal love and faithfulness should protect him.[c]

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 61:6 tn Heb “days upon days of the king add, his years like generation and generation.”sn It is not certain if the (royal) psalmist is referring to himself in the third person in this verse, or if an exile is praying on behalf of the king.
  2. Psalm 61:7 tn Heb “sit [enthroned].” The prefixed verbal form is understood as a jussive here, expressing the psalmist’s prayer.
  3. Psalm 61:7 tn Heb “loyal love and faithfulness appoint, let them protect him.”
