Psalm 63 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible

A psalm of David, when [he] was in the wilderness of Judah.

Longing for God

1 aO God, you [are] my God; I will seek you diligently. My soul thirsts for you; my flesh longs for you [as] in a dry and weary land without water. 2 Thus I have seen you in the sanctuary, beholding your strength and glory. 3 Because your loyal love [is] better than life, my lips will praise you. 4 So I will bless you while I live. I will lift up my {hands}b in your name. 5 My soul will be satisfied [as with the] best and richest [food], and [with] joyful lips my mouth will praise. 6 When I remember you on my bed, I meditate on you in [the] night watches. 7 Because you have been my help, thereforec in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. 8 My soul clings tod you; your right hand upholds me. 9 But as for them [who] seek my life for ruin, they will go into the depths of the earth. 10 They [who] would {deliver him to the sword}e will become a portion for jackals. 11 However, the king will rejoice in God. Everyone who swears an oath by him will boast, because [the] mouth of [the] liars will be stopped.
