63 1 David after he had been in great danger by Saul in the desert of Ziph, made this Psalm. 3 Wherein he giveth thanks to God for his wonderful deliverance, in whose mercies he trusted, even in the midst of his miseries. 9 Prophesying the destruction of God’s enemies: 11 And contrariwise happiness to all them that trust in the Lord.
A Psalm of David, when he was in the [a]wilderness of Judah.
1 O God, thou art my God, early will I seek thee: my soul [b]thirsteth for thee: my flesh longeth greatly after thee in a barren and dry land without water:
2 Thus [c]I behold thee as in the Sanctuary, when I behold thy power and thy glory.
3 For thy loving-kindness is better than life: therefore my lips shall praise thee.
4 Thus will I magnify thee all my life, and lift up mine hands in thy Name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied, as with [d]marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips,
6 When I remember thee on my bed, and when I think upon thee in the night watches.
7 Because thou hast been mine helper, therefore under the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul [e]cleaveth unto thee: for thy right hand upholdeth me.
9 Therefore they that seek my soul to destroy it, they shall go into the lowest parts of the earth.
10 [f]They shall cast him down with the edge of the sword, and they shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God, and all that [g]swear by him shall rejoice in him: for the mouth of them that speak lies, shall be stopped.
