63 (0) A psalm of David, when he was in the desert of Y’hudah:

(1) O God, you are my God;
I will seek you eagerly.
My heart thirsts for you,
my body longs for you
in a land parched and exhausted,
where no water can be found.
(2) I used to contemplate you in the sanctuary,
seeing your power and glory;
(3) for your grace is better than life.
My lips will worship you.
(4) Yes, I will bless you as long as I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.
(5) I am as satisfied as with rich food;
my mouth praises you with joy on my lips
(6) when I remember you on my bed
and meditate on you in the night watches.

(7) For you have been my help;
in the shadow of your wings I rejoice;
(8) my heart clings to you;
your right hand supports me.

10 (9) But those who seek to destroy my life —
may they go to the lowest parts of the earth.
11 (10) May they be given over to the power of the sword;
may they become prey for jackals.

12 (11) But the king will rejoice in God.
Everyone who swears by him will exult,
for the mouths of liars will be silenced.
