PSALM 63 The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in God. A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. 63 1O God, You are my God; I shall seek You [B]earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh [C]yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water. 2Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. 3Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips will praise You. 4So I will bless You as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. 5My soul is satisfied as with [D]marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips. 6When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches, 7For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. 8My soul clings [E]to You; Your right hand upholds me. 9But those who seek my [F]life to destroy it, Will go into the [G]depths of the earth. 10[H]They will be [I]delivered over to the power of the sword; They will be a [J]prey for foxes. 11But the king will rejoice in God; Everyone who swears by Him will glory, For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.
