Psalm 63
NET BibleEnglish Standard Version
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. 1O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2Yes, in the sanctuary I have seen you, and witnessed your power and splendor. 2So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.
3Because experiencing your loyal love is better than life itself, my lips will praise you. 3Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise 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 up my hands.
5As if with choice meat you satisfy my soul. My mouth joyfully praises you, 5My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
6whenever I remember you on my bed, and think about you during the nighttime hours. 6when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
7For you are my deliverer; under your wings I rejoice. 7for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
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 to destroy my life shall go down into the depths of the earth;
10Each one will be handed over to the sword; their corpses will be eaten by jackals. 10they shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be a portion for jackals.
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 shall rejoice in God; all who swear by him shall exult, for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
