Psalm 63

My Soul Thirsts for You
A Psalm of David, #[2 Sam. 16:14; 17:2, 29]when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
1O God, you are my God; #Ps. 78:34; Isa. 26:9 earnestly I seek you;
# See Ps. 84:2 my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in #Ps. 143:6; Isa. 32:2a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding #Ps. 78:61; [Ps. 27:4]your power and glory.
3Because your #[Ps. 69:16]steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
4So I will bless you #Ps. 104:33; 146:2 as long as I live;
in your #Ps. 20:1, 5 name I will #See Ps. 28:2lift up my hands.
5My soul will be #See Ps. 36:8satisfied as with fat and rich food,
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
6when I remember you #See Ps. 42:8upon my bed,
and meditate on you in #See Ps. 42:8the watches of the night;
7for you have been my help,
and in #See Ps. 17:8the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
8My soul #[Num. 14:24] clings to you;
your right hand #See Ps. 41:12upholds me.
9But those who seek to destroy my life
# Ps. 9:17; 55:15 shall go down into #Ezek. 26:20; 31:14; Eph. 4:9the depths of the earth;
10they shall be given over to the power of the sword;
they shall be a portion for jackals.
11But #Ps. 61:6 the king shall rejoice in God;
all who #Deut. 6:13; Isa. 45:23; 65:16 swear by him shall exult,
# Ps. 107:42; Job 5:16; [Rom. 3:19] for the mouths of #[Ps. 38:12; 41:5-8]liars will be stopped.
