Psalm 63
New Living TranslationEnglish Standard Version
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.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.
2I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory.2So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.
3Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!3Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.
4I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer.4So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands.
5You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.5My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
6I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night.6when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
7Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.7for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
8I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.8My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
9But those plotting to destroy me will come to ruin. They will go down into the depths of the earth.9But those who seek to destroy my life shall go down into the depths of the earth;
10They will die by the sword and become the food of 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. All who swear to tell the truth will praise him, while liars will be silenced.11But the king shall rejoice in God; all who swear by him shall exult, for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
