Psalm 63

A psalm of David, regarding a time when David was in the wilderness of Judah.
1 O 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.
2 I have seen you in your sanctuary
  and gazed upon your power and glory.
3 Your unfailing love is better than life itself;
  how I praise you!
4 I will praise you as long as I live,
  lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
5 You satisfy me more than the richest feast.
  I will praise you with songs of joy.

6 I lie awake thinking of you,
  meditating on you through the night.
7 Because you are my helper,
  I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you;
  your strong right hand holds me securely.

9 But those plotting to destroy me will come to ruin.
  They will go down into the depths of the earth.
10 They will die by the sword
  and become the food of jackals.
11 But the king will rejoice in God.
  All who trust in him will praise him,
  while liars will be silenced.

“For me, the greatest blessing of the NLT is how it opens up the meaning and impact of the Scriptures to people. I think it is a wonderful translation, and a gift to the Church.”
