Psalm 63

(New Revised Standard Version)


O God, You are my God;
I seek You;
my soul thirsts for You;
my flesh longs for You
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,
beholding Your power and Your glory.

Because Your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise You.

So I will bless You as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands and call on Your name.

My soul is satisfied as with a rich feast,
and my mouth praises You with joyful lips.

When I think of You on my bed,
and meditate on You in the watches of the night;
for You have been my help,
and in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.

My soul clings to You;
Your right hand upholds me.

But those who seek my life, to destroy my life shall go down,
into the depths of the earth;
they shall be prey for jackals.

But the king shall rejoice in God;
all who swears by Him shall exult;
for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
