Psalm 63
NET BibleHolman Christian Standard 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 Davidic psalm. When he was in the Wilderness of Judah. God, You are my God; I eagerly seek You. I thirst for You; my body faints for You in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water.
2Yes, in the sanctuary I have seen you, and witnessed your power and splendor. 2So I gaze on You in the sanctuary to see Your strength and Your glory.
3Because experiencing your loyal love is better than life itself, my lips will praise you. 3My lips will glorify You because Your faithful love is better than life.
4For this reason I will praise you while I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. 4So I will praise You as long as I live; at Your name, I will lift up my hands.
5As if with choice meat you satisfy my soul. My mouth joyfully praises you, 5You satisfy me as with rich food; 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 think of You as I lie on my bed, I meditate on You during the night watches
7For you are my deliverer; under your wings I rejoice. 7because You are my helper; I will rejoice in the shadow of Your wings.
8My soul pursues you; your right hand upholds me. 8I follow close to You; Your right hand holds on to 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 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 be given over to the power of the sword; they will become the jackals' prey.
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 boast, for the mouths of liars will be shut.
