Psalm 61:2, "From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I."

Psalm 61:3, "For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy."

Psalm 61:4, "I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah."

Psalm 61:4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

Psalm 61:4Comments - On the curtains of the Tabernacle were embroideries of heavenly cheribum ( Exodus 26:1). As the priest entered the Holy Place, he could look up at the draped ceiling and see the embroidery of the cheribum with their wings spreading across the Tabernacle.

Exodus 26:1, "Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make them."
