Psalm 63
NET BibleNew American Standard Bible 1995
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; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, 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. 2Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.
3Because experiencing your loyal love is better than life itself, my lips will praise you. 3Because Your lovingkindness 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; I will lift up my hands in Your name.
5As if with choice meat you satisfy my soul. My mouth joyfully praises you, 5My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.
6whenever I remember you on my bed, and think about you during the nighttime hours. 6When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches,
7For you are my deliverer; under your wings I rejoice. 7For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings I 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 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 be delivered over to the power of the sword; They will be a prey 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; Everyone who swears by Him will glory, For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.
