Psalm 63

Psalm 63

Joy in the Fellowship of God

A Psalm of David aWhen He Was in the Wilderness of Judah.

1 O God, You are my God;

Early will I seek You;

bMy soul thirsts for You;

My flesh longs for You

In a dry and thirsty land

Where there is no water.

2 So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,

To see cYour power and Your glory.

3 dBecause Your lovingkindness is better than life,

My lips shall praise You.

4 Thus I will bless You while I live;

I will elift up my hands in Your name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with 1marrow and 2fatness,

And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.

6 When fI remember You on my bed,

I meditate on You in the night watches.

7 Because You have been my help,

Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.

8 My soul follows close behind You;

Your right hand upholds me.

9 But those who seek my life, to destroy it,

Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

10 They shall 3fall by the sword;

They shall be 4a portion for jackals.

11 But the king shall rejoice in God;

gEveryone who swears by Him shall glory;

But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
