Psalm 63:6-8 New English Translation (NET Bible)

whenever[a] I remember you on my bed,
and think about you during the nighttime hours.
For you are my deliverer;[b]
under your wings[c] I rejoice.
My soul[d] pursues you;[e]
your right hand upholds me.


  1. Psalm 63:6 tn The Hebrew term אִם (ʾim) is used here in the sense of “when; whenever,” as in Ps 78:34.
  2. Psalm 63:7 tn Or “[source of] help.”
  3. Psalm 63:7 tn Heb “in the shadow of your wings.”
  4. Psalm 63:8 tn Or “I.” The Hebrew term נֶפֶשׁ (nefesh) with a pronominal suffix is often equivalent to a pronoun, especially in poetry (see BDB 660 s.v. נֶפֶשׁ 4.a).
  5. Psalm 63:8 tn Heb “clings after.” The expression means “to pursue with determination” (see Judg 20:45; 1 Sam 14:22; 1 Chr 10:2; Jer 42:16).
