Psalms 63
Praise God Who Satisfies
A Davidic psalm. When he was in the Wilderness of Judah. # 2Sm 16:14; 17:2,29
1God, You are my God; I eagerly seek You.
I thirst for You;
my body faints for You
in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water. # Ps 42:2; Is 26:9
2So I gaze on You in the sanctuary
to see Your strength and Your glory. # Jb 19:26-27; Ps 17:15; 27:4
3My lips will glorify You
because Your faithful love is better than life. # Ps 69:16
4So I will praise You as long as I live;
at Your name, I will lift up my hands. # Ps 28:2; 143:6; Lm 3:41
5You satisfy me as with rich food; # Lit with fat and fatness # Ps 36:8
my mouth will praise You with joyful lips. # Ps 71:23
6When I think of You as I lie on my bed,
I meditate on You during the night watches # Ps 77:6; 119:148
7because You are my helper; # Ps 27:9; 40:17
I will rejoice in the shadow of Your wings. # Ps 17:8; 36:7; 57:1
8I follow close to You;
Your right hand holds on to me. # Ps 18:35
9But those who seek to destroy my life
will go into the depths of the earth. # Ps 55:15; Ezk 26:20; 31:14-18
10They will be given over to the power of the sword; # Jr 18:21; Ezk 35:5
they will become the jackals’ prey.
11But the king will rejoice in God; # Ps 21:1
all who swear by Him # Or him will boast,
for the mouths of liars will be shut. # Ps 107:42; Rm 3:19
