Definitions for Psalms 61 :1

Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 61 :1

Hear my cry, O God - In the midst of a long and painful captivity, oppressed with suffering, encompassed with cruel enemies and isolent masters, I address my humble prayer to Thee, O my God.

Barnes's Commentary on Psalms 61 :1

Hear my cry, O God - See the notes at Psalm 5:2. The word rendered cry in this place sometimes denotes a joyful shout - a shout of triumph; but the connection makes it certain that it here refers to the voice of prayer. It is implied that it was audible prayer, or that the psalmist gave utterance to his desires in words. It is language such as would be produced by deep distress; when a sad and burdened heart gives vent to its feelings in a loud cry for mercy.

Attend unto my prayer - Give ear; incline the ear to me, Psalm 5:1; Psalm 17:1, Psalm 17:6; Psalm 39:12; Psalm 71:2.

Wesley's Commentary on Psalms 61 :1
