English Standard Version
My Soul Waits for God Alone
To the choirmaster: according to (A)Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
3 How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like (G)a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 They only plan to thrust him down from his (H)high position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
(I)They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah
5 For God alone, O (J)my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 (K)He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my (L)salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, (M)my refuge is God.
9 (Q)Those of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate (R)are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
(S)they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no trust in extortion;
(T)set no vain hopes on robbery;
(U)if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
My Soul Thirsts for You
A Psalm of David, (AA)when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
63 O God, you are my God; (AB)earnestly I seek you;
(AC)my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in (AD)a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding (AE)your power and glory.
3 Because your (AF)steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
4 So I will bless you (AG)as long as I live;
in your (AH)name I will (AI)lift up my hands.
5 My soul will be (AJ)satisfied as with fat and rich food,
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
6 when I remember you (AK)upon my bed,
and meditate on you in (AL)the watches of the night;
7 for you have been my help,
and in (AM)the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
8 My soul (AN)clings to you;
your right hand (AO)upholds me.
9 But those who seek to destroy my life
(AP)shall go down into (AQ)the depths of the earth;
10 they shall be given over to the power of the sword;
they shall be a portion for jackals.
11 But (AR)the king shall rejoice in God;
all who (AS)swear by him shall exult,
(AT)for the mouths of (AU)liars will be stopped.
