The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in God.

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

1 O God, aYou are my God; I shall seek You 1earnestly;

My soul bthirsts for You, my flesh 2yearns for You,

In a cdry and weary land where there is no water.

2 Thus I have aseen You in the sanctuary,

To see Your power and Your glory.

3 Because Your alovingkindness is better than life,

My lips will praise You.

4 So I will bless You aas long as I live;

I will blift up my hands in Your name.

5 My soul is asatisfied as with 1marrow and fatness,

And my mouth offers bpraises with joyful lips.

6 When I remember You aon my bed,

I meditate on You in the bnight watches,

7 For aYou have been my help,

And in the bshadow of Your wings I sing for joy.

8 My soul aclings 1to You;

Your bright hand upholds me.

9 But those who aseek my 1life to destroy it,

Will go into the 2bdepths of the earth.

10 1They will be 2adelivered over to the power of the sword;

They will be a 3bprey for foxes.

11 But the aking will rejoice in God;

Everyone who bswears by Him will glory,

For the cmouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.


About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
