Psalm 63
New Living TranslationInternational 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.1God, you are my God! I will fervently seek you. My soul thirsts for you; my flesh longs for you in a dry, weary, and parched land.
2I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory.2So I have looked for you in the sanctuary, to behold your power and glory.
3Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!3Because your gracious love is better than life itself, 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; I will lift up my hands in your name.
5You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.5Just as I am satisfied with the choicest of foods, so my lips will praise you joyfully.
6I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night.6When I think of you in bed, I will meditate on you in the night watches.
7Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.7For you have been my strength, and in the shadow of your wings I will shout for joy.
8I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.8My soul clings to you, even as your right hand supports me.
9But those plotting to destroy me will come to ruin. They will go down into the depths of the earth.9But as for those who seek to destroy me, they will go down to the depths of the earth;
10They will die by the sword and become the food of jackals.10May they be given over to the power of the sword; may they become carrion 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 as for the king, he will rejoice in God. Indeed, everyone who swears by God will exult, because the mouths of liars will be silenced.
