Psalm 63

My Soul Thirsts for You

1 O GOD, You are my God;
Early will I seek You;
a My soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You
In a dry and thirsty land
Where there is no water.
2 So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,
To see b Your power and Your glory.
3 c Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
4 Thus I will bless You while I live;
I will d lift up my hands in Your name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with 1 marrow and 2 fatness,
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
6 When e I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.
7 Because You have been my help,
Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
8 My soul follows close behind You;
Your right hand upholds me.

9 But those who seek my life, to destroy it,
Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall 3 fall by the sword;
They shall be 4 a portion for jackals.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God;
f Everyone who swears by Him shall glory;
But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
