Amplified Bible

Psalm 63

The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in God.

A Psalm of David; when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

1O God, You are my God; with deepest longing I will seek You;
My [a]soul [my life, my very self] thirsts for You, my flesh longs and sighs for You,
In a dry and weary land where there is no water.

So I have gazed upon You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory.

Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.

So will I bless You as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.

My [b]soul [my life, my very self] is satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth offers praises [to You] with joyful lips.

When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate and thoughtfully focus on You in the night watches,

For You have been my help,
And in the shadow of Your wings [where I am always protected] I sing for joy.

My [c]soul [my life, my very self] clings to You;
Your right hand upholds me.

But those who seek my life to destroy it
Will [be destroyed and] go into the depths of the earth [into the underworld].
They will be given over to the power of the sword;
They will be a prey for foxes.
But the king will rejoice in God;
Everyone who swears by Him [honoring the true God, acknowledging His authority and majesty] will glory,
For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.

Salmos 63

Salmo de David, cuando estaba en el desierto de Judá.

1Oh Dios, tú eres mi Dios;
    yo te busco intensamente.
Mi alma tiene sed de ti;
    todo mi ser te anhela,
    cual tierra seca, extenuada y sedienta.

Te he visto en el santuario
    y he contemplado tu poder y tu gloria.
Tu amor es mejor que la vida;
    por eso mis labios te alabarán.
Te bendeciré mientras viva,
    y alzando mis manos te invocaré.

Mi alma quedará satisfecha
    como de un suculento banquete,
y con labios jubilosos
    te alabará mi boca.

En mi lecho me acuerdo de ti;
    pienso en ti toda la noche.
A la sombra de tus alas cantaré,
    porque tú eres mi ayuda.
Mi alma se aferra a ti;
    tu mano derecha me sostiene.

Los que buscan mi muerte serán destruidos;
    bajarán a las profundidades de la tierra.
10 Serán entregados a la espada
    y acabarán devorados por los chacales.

11 El rey se regocijará en Dios;
    todos los que invocan a Dios lo alabarán,
    pero los mentirosos serán silenciados.
