Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Psalm of David, when he was in the Wilderness of Judah. O God, thou art my God, I seek thee, my soul thirsts for thee; my flesh faints for thee, as in a dry and weary land where no water is. 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 have looked upon thee in the sanctuary, beholding thy power and glory. 2 I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because thy steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise thee. 3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
4 So I will bless thee as long as I live; I will lift up my hands and call on thy name. 4 I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 My soul is feasted as with marrow and fat, and my mouth praises thee with joyful lips, 5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
6 when I think of thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the watches of the night; 6 On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 for thou hast been my help, and in the shadow of thy wings I sing for joy. 7 Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 My soul clings to thee; thy right hand upholds me. 8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
9 But those who seek to destroy my life shall go down 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 shall be given over to the power of the sword, they shall be prey for jackals. 10 They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; all who swear by him shall glory; for the mouths of liars will be stopped. 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.
