Psalm 63:2-5 (GNT) – Psalmen 63:2-5 (HTB) – Sálmarnir 63 (ICELAND)

O God, you are my God,
and I long for you.
My whole being desires you;
like a dry, worn-out, and waterless land,
my soul is thirsty for you.
Let me see you in the sanctuary;
let me see how mighty and glorious you are.
Your constant love is better than life itself,
and so I will praise you.
I will give you thanks as long as I live;
I will raise my hands to you in prayer.
My soul will feast and be satisfied,
and I will sing glad songs of praise to you.

 

God, mijn God, ik zoek U overal; mijn hart dorst naar U. Ook mijn lichaam verlangt naar U in dit dorre, droge land, waar geen water is.

Ik heb U in Uw heiligdom gezien; ik zag Uw kracht en majesteit.

Uw goedheid en trouw overtreffen het leven zelf. Ik zal met mijn mond Uw naam grootmaken.

Mijn leven lang wil ik U prijzen; mijn handen naar U opheffen wanneer ik bid.

 

Drottinn, þú ert minn Guð, þín leita ég, sál mína þyrstir eftir þér, hold mitt þráir þig, í þurru landi, örþrota af vatnsleysi.

Þannig hefi ég litast um eftir þér í helgidóminum til þess að sjá veldi þitt og dýrð,

því að miskunn þín er mætari en lífið. Varir mínar skulu vegsama þig.

Þannig skal ég lofa þig meðan lifi, hefja upp hendurnar í þínu nafni.
