Psalm 63

A Psalm of David, when he was in the Wilderness of Judah.

O God, You are my God;
    early will I seek You;
my soul thirsts for You,
    my flesh faints for You,
in a dry and thirsty land
    with no water.

I have seen You in the sanctuary,
    to see Your power and Your glory.
Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
    my lips will praise You.
Thus will I bless You while I live;
    I will lift up my hands in Your name.
My soul will be satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
    and my mouth will praise You with joyful lips.

When I remember You on my bed,
    and meditate on You in the night watches,
because You have been my help,
    therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
My soul clings hard to You;
    Your right hand upholds me.

But those who seek my soul to destroy it
    will go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They will fall by the sword;
    they will be a portion for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;
    everyone who swears by Him will glory,
    because the mouth of liars will be stopped.
