Psalm 63

Psalm 63

A psalm of David when he was in the Desert of Judah.

God, you are my God.
    I seek you with all my heart.
With all my strength I thirst for you
    in this dry desert
    where there isn’t any water.

I have seen you in the sacred tent.
    There I have seen your power and your glory.
Your love is better than life.
    So I will bring glory to you with my lips.
I will praise you as long as I live.
    I will call on your name when I lift up my hands in prayer.
I will be as satisfied as if I had eaten the best food there is.
    I will sing praise to you with my mouth.

As I lie on my bed I remember you.
    I think of you all night long.
Because you have helped me,
    I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I hold on to you tightly.
    Your powerful right hand takes good care of me.

Those who want to kill me will be destroyed.
    They will go down into the grave.
10 They will be killed by swords.
    They will become food for wild dogs.

11 But the king will be filled with joy because of what God has done.
    All those who make promises in God’s name will be able to brag.
    But the mouths of liars will be shut.

诗篇 63

渴慕上帝

大卫在旷野时作的诗。

1上帝啊,你是我的上帝,
我迫切地寻求你!
在干旱荒凉之地,
我的心渴慕你,渴慕你!
我曾在你的圣所瞻仰你的荣面,
目睹你的权能和荣耀。
你的慈爱比生命更宝贵,
我的嘴唇要赞美你。
我一生都要赞美你,
奉你的名举手祷告。
我心满意足,如享盛宴,
唱起欢快的歌赞美你。
我躺在床上的时候思念你,
整夜地思想你。
因为你是我的帮助,
我在你翅膀的荫庇下欢歌。
我的心依恋你,
你的右手扶持我。
那些图谋毁灭我的人必下到阴间。
10 他们必丧身刀下,
成为豺狼的食物。
11 但王要因上帝而欢欣,
凡信靠祂的人必欢喜快乐,
说谎者的口必被封住。
