Psalms 63



1 A psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
2 O God, Thou art my God;
in·​·the·​·dawn· will I ·seek Thee;
my soul thirsts for Thee, my flesh yearns for Thee,
in an arid and fainting land, without water.

2 3 Thus would I behold Thee in holiness,
to see Thy strength and Thy glory.

3 4 For Thy mercy is better than life,
my lips shall extol Thee.

4 5 Thus will I bless Thee in my life;
in Thy name will I lift·​·up my palms.

5 6 My soul shall be satisfied as with fat and fatness*;
and my mouth shall·​·praise Thee with lips of loud·​·song.

6 7 When I remember Thee upon my mat,
in the night watches I meditate on Thee.

7 8 For Thou hast been a help for me,
and in the shadow of Thy wings will I sing·​·aloud.

8 9 My soul sticks to Thee;
Thy right·​·hand upholds me.

9 10 But they who seek my soul are for vastation,
they shall go·​·into the lower parts of the earth.

10 11 They shall make him flow·​·down on the hands of the sword;
they shall be the portion of foxes.

11 12 But the king shall be·​·glad in God; everyone who swears by Him shall himself glory.
for the mouth of those who speak falsity shall be shut·​·up.
