NET BibleBerean Study Bible
1A psalm of David, written when he was in the Judean wilderness. O God, you are my God! I long for you! My soul thirsts for you, my flesh yearns for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. 1A Psalm of David, when he was in the Wilderness of Judah. O God, You are my God. Earnestly I seek You; my soul thirsts for You. My body yearns for You in a dry and weary land without water.
2Yes, in the sanctuary I have seen you, and witnessed your power and splendor. 2So I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld Your power and glory.
3Because experiencing your loyal love is better than life itself, my lips will praise you. 3Because Your loving devotion is better than life, my lips will glorify You.
4For this reason I will praise you while I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. 4So I will bless You as long as I live; in Your name I will lift my hands.
5As if with choice meat you satisfy my soul. My mouth joyfully praises you, 5My soul is satisfied as with the richest of foods; with joyful lips my mouth will praise You.
6whenever I remember you on my bed, and think about you during the nighttime hours. 6When I remember You on my bed, I think of You through the watches of the night.
7For you are my deliverer; under your wings I rejoice. 7For You are my help; I will sing for joy in the shadow of Your wings.
8My soul pursues you; your right hand upholds me. 8My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.
9Enemies seek to destroy my life, but they will descend into the depths of the earth. 9But those who seek my life to destroy it will go into the depths of the earth.
10Each one will be handed over to the sword; their corpses will be eaten by jackals. 10They will fall to the power of the sword; they will become a portion for foxes.
11But the king will rejoice in God; everyone who takes oaths in his name will boast, for the mouths of those who speak lies will be shut up. 11But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by Him will exult, for the mouths of liars will be shut.
