Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation
So do I praise Thy name for ever, When I pay my vows day by day!

Psalm 61:8 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

So will I sing praise unto thy name for evher - For the benefits which I have received, and hope to receive endlessly from thee, I will to all perpetuity praise thee.

That I may daily perform my vows - While I live, I shall יום יום yom, yom, "day by day," each day as it succeeds, render to thee my vows - act according to what I have often purposed, and as often promised. The Chaldee ends remarkably: "Thus I will praise thy name for ever, when I shall perform my vows in the day of the rederaption of Israel; and in the day in which the King Messiah shall be anointed, that he may reign."

The ancient Jews were full of the expectation of the Messiah; the Jews of the present day have given up their hope.

December 15. "When My Heart is Overwhelmed Lead Me to the Rock that is Higher than I" (Ps. Lxi. 2).
"When my heart is overwhelmed lead me to the Rock that is higher than I" (Ps. lxi. 2). The end of self is the beginning of God. "When the tale of bricks is doubled then comes Moses." That is the old Hebrew way of putting it. "Man's extremity is God's opportunity." That is the proverbial expression of it. "When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I." That is David's way of expressing it. "We have no might against this company, neither know we what to do." No might, no
Rev. A. B. Simpson—Days of Heaven Upon Earth

Thy Neck is Like the Tower of David, Builded with Bulwarks; a Thousand Shields Hang Upon It, all the Armor of Mighty Men.
The neck is the strength of the soul; it is well likened to the tower of David, because all the strength of the soul is in God, who is the house of Jesus Christ and of David. For this great King insists in many places in the Psalms, that God alone is his support, his refuge, his defence, and, above all, his strong tower (Psalm 61), The bulwarks that surround it are the total abandonment the soul has made of itself to God. Trust, faith and hope have fortified it in its abandonment; the weaker it is
