Psalm 63
New International VersionNew American Standard Bible 1995
1A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah. You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs 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.
2I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.2Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.
3Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.3Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips will praise You.
4I will praise you as long as I live, and 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.
5I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.5My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.
6On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.6When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches,
7Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.7For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.
8I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.8My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.
9Those who want to kill me will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.9But those who seek my life to destroy it, Will go into the depths of the earth.
10They will be given over to the sword and become food for 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; all who swear by God will glory in him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.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.
