Psalm 63
New Living TranslationChristian Standard Bible
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 eagerly seek you. I thirst for you; my body faints for you in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water.
2I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory.2So I gaze on you in the sanctuary to see your strength and your glory.
3Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!3My lips will glorify you because your faithful love is better than life.
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; at your name, I will lift up my hands.
5You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.5You satisfy me as with rich food; my mouth will praise you with joyful lips.
6I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night.6When I think of you as I lie on my bed, I meditate on you during the night watches
7Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.7because you are my helper; I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings.
8I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.8I follow close to you; your right hand holds on to me.
9But those plotting to destroy me will come to ruin. They will go down into the depths of the earth.9But those who intend to destroy my life will go into the depths of the earth.
10They will die by the sword and become the food of jackals.10They will be given over to the power of the sword; they will become a meal 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 will rejoice in God; all who swear by him will boast, for the mouths of liars will be shut.
