詩篇 63

渴慕上帝

大衛在曠野時作的詩。

1上帝啊,你是我的上帝,
我迫切地尋求你!
在乾旱荒涼之地,
我的心渴慕你,渴慕你!
我曾在你的聖所瞻仰你的榮面,
目睹你的權能和榮耀。
你的慈愛比生命更寶貴,
我的嘴唇要讚美你。
我一生都要讚美你,
奉你的名舉手禱告。
我心滿意足,如享盛宴,
唱起歡快的歌讚美你。
我躺在床上的時候思念你,
整夜地思想你。
因為你是我的幫助,
我在你翅膀的蔭庇下歡歌。
我的心依戀你,
你的右手扶持我。
那些圖謀毀滅我的人必下到陰間。
10 他們必喪身刀下,
成為豺狼的食物。
11 但王要因上帝而歡欣,
凡信靠祂的人必歡喜快樂,
說謊者的口必被封住。

The Message

Psalm 63

A David Psalm, When He Was out in the Judean Wilderness

1God—you’re my God!
    I can’t get enough of you!
I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God,
    traveling across dry and weary deserts.

2-4 So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
    drinking in your strength and glory.
In your generous love I am really living at last!
    My lips brim praises like fountains.
I bless you every time I take a breath;
    My arms wave like banners of praise to you.

5-8 I eat my fill of prime rib and gravy;
    I smack my lips. It’s time to shout praises!
If I’m sleepless at midnight,
    I spend the hours in grateful reflection.
Because you’ve always stood up for me,
    I’m free to run and play.
I hold on to you for dear life,
    and you hold me steady as a post.

9-11 Those who are out to get me are marked for doom,
    marked for death, bound for hell.
They’ll die violent deaths;
    jackals will tear them limb from limb.
But the king is glad in God;
    his true friends spread the joy,
While small-minded gossips
    are gagged for good.
