GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 O God, you are my God. At dawn I search for you. My soul thirsts for you. My body longs for you in a dry, parched land where there is no water. 1 O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 So I look for you in the holy place to see your power and your glory. 2 I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
3 My lips will praise you because your mercy is better than life [itself]. 3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
4 So I will thank you as long as I live. I will lift up my hands [to pray] in your name. 4 I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 You satisfy my soul with the richest foods. My mouth will sing [your] praise with joyful lips. 5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
6 As I lie on my bed, I remember you. Through the long hours of the night, I think about you. 6 On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 You have been my help. In the shadow of your wings, I sing joyfully. 7 Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 My soul clings to you. Your right hand supports me. 8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
9 But those who try to destroy my life will go into the depths of the earth. 9 They who seek my life will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be cut down by swords. Their dead bodies will be left as food for jackals. 10 They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.
11 But the king will find joy in God. Everyone who takes an oath by God will brag, but the mouths of liars will be shut. 11 But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God's name will praise him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
