Chapter 63

63:1 A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

63:2 O God, Thou art my God, earnestly will I seek Thee; my soul thirsteth for Thee, my flesh longeth for Thee, in a dry and weary land, where no water is.

63:3 So have I looked for Thee in the sanctuary, to see Thy power and Thy glory.

63:4 For Thy lovingkindness is better than life; my lips shall praise Thee.

63:5 So will I bless Thee as long as I live; in Thy name will I lift up my hands.

63:6 My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth doth praise Thee with joyful lips;

63:7 When I remember Thee upon my couch, and meditate on Thee in the night-watches.

63:8 For Thou hast been my help, and in the shadow of Thy wings do I rejoice.

63:9 My soul cleaveth unto Thee; Thy right hand holdeth me fast.

63:10 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the nethermost parts of the earth.

63:11 They shall be hurled to the power of the sword; they shall be a portion for foxes.

63:12 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by Him shall glory; for the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
