PSALM 63

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judea

1 O God! my God art thou; Early will I seek thee: Thirsted for thee hath my soul, Longed for thee hath my flesh, In this land [that is] inhospitable and dry, without water.

2 Thus in the sanctuary have I beheld thee, To see thy power and thy glory.

3 Because better is thy mercy than life, My lips shall praise thee.

4 Thus will I bless thee in my life; In thy name I will lift up my hands.

5 As with marrow and farness satisfied shall be my soul, And with lips of rejoicing shall my mouth praise thee

6 Surely I will remember thee upon my bed; In the watches of the night I will meditate upon thee;

7 Because thou hast been a help to me: And in the shadow of thy wings I will shout for joy.

8 Cleaved hath my soul to [literally after] thee; Sustain me shall thy right hand.

9 And they whilst they seek to destroy my soul, Shall go into the lowest parts of the earth.

10 They shall east him down to the edge of the sword: The portion of foxes they shall be.

11 But the king shall rejoice in God, And glory shall every one who sweareth by him: For stopped shall be the mouth of those who speak falsehood.
