Ps 61:2
61:2 From {a} the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my
     heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock [that] is {b}
     higher than I.

     (a) From the place where I was banished, being driven out
         of the city and temple by my son Absalom.
     (b) To which without your help I cannot attain.

Ps 61:5
61:5 For thou, O God, {c} hast heard my vows: thou hast given
     [me] the heritage of those that fear thy name.

     (c) There is nothing that strengthens our faith more than
         the memory of God's help in times past.

Ps 61:6
61:6 Thou wilt prolong the king's {d} life: [and] his years as
     many generations.

     (d) This chiefly refers to Christ, who lives eternally not
         only in himself but also in his members.

Ps 61:7
61:7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare {e} mercy and
     truth, [which] may preserve him.

     (e) For the stability of my kingdom stands in your mercy
         and truth.
