Psalm 63

Psalm 63[a]

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

You, God, are my God,
    earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
    my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
    where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary
    and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
    my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
    and in your name I will lift up my hands.
I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
    with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

On my bed I remember you;
    I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
    I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
    your right hand upholds me.

Those who want to kill me will be destroyed;
    they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword
    and become food for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;
    all who swear by God will glory in him,
    while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

  1. Psalm 63:1 In Hebrew texts 63:1-11 is numbered 63:2-12.

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。
