Psalm 63 Joy in the Fellowship of God A Psalm of David When He Was in the Wilderness of Judah. 63 1O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. 2So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. 3Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. 4Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. 5My soul shall be satisfied as with [Y]marrow and [Z]fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. 6When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches. 7Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice. 8My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me. 9But those who seek my life, to destroy it, Shall go into the lower parts of the earth. 10They shall [A]fall by the sword; They shall be [B]a portion for jackals. 11But the king shall rejoice in God; Everyone who swears by Him shall glory; But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
