Psalm 63
New International VersionNew Living Translation
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.1O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.
2I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.2I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory.
3Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.3Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!
4I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.4I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
5I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.5You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.
6On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.6I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night.
7Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.7Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
8I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.8I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.
9Those who want to kill me will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.9But those plotting to destroy me will come to ruin. They will go down into the depths of the earth.
10They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.10They will die by the sword and become the food of jackals.
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. All who swear to tell the truth will praise him, while liars will be silenced.
