A song of David when he was in the desert of Judah.
63 God, you are my God. I want to follow you. My whole being thirsts for you, like a man in a dry, empty land where there is no water. 2 I have seen you in the Temple. I have seen your strength and glory. 3 Your love is better than life. I will praise you. 4 I will praise you as long as I live. I will lift up my hands in prayer to your name. 5 I will be content as if I had eaten the best foods. My lips will sing. My mouth will praise you.
6 I remember you while I’m lying in bed. I think about you through the night. 7 You are my help. Because of your protection, I sing. 8 I stay close to you. You support me with your right hand.
9 Some people are trying to kill me. But they will go down to the grave. 10 They will be killed with swords. They will be eaten by wild dogs. 11 But the king will rejoice in his God. All who make promises in his name will praise him. But the mouths of liars will be shut.
