Psalm 63Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Praise God Who Satisfies
A Davidic psalm. When he was in the Wilderness of Judah.
1 God, 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.
2 So I gaze on You in the sanctuary
to see Your strength and Your glory.
3 My lips will glorify You
because Your faithful love is better than life.
4 So I will praise You as long as I live;
at Your name, I will lift up my hands.
5 You satisfy me as with rich food;
my mouth will praise You with joyful lips.
6 When I think of You as I lie on my bed,
I meditate on You during the night watches
7 because You are my helper;
I will rejoice in the shadow of Your wings.
8 I follow close to You;
Your right hand holds on to me.
9 But those who seek to destroy my life
will go into the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the power of the sword;
they will become the jackals’ prey.
11 But the king will rejoice in God;
all who swear by Him will boast,
for the mouths of liars will be shut.
