World English Bible
My flesh and my heart fails, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Young's Literal Translation
Consumed hath been my flesh and my heart, The rock of my heart and my portion is God to the age.
Psalm 73:26 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
My soul faints with longing for your salvation, but I have put my hope in your word.
