Psalm 63
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in God.

A Psalm of David; when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

1O God, You are my God; with deepest longing I will seek You;

My [a]soul [my life, my very self] thirsts for You, my flesh longs and sighs for You,

In a dry and weary land where there is no water.

2So I have gazed upon You in the sanctuary,

To see Your power and Your glory.

3Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,

My lips shall praise You.

4So will I bless You as long as I live;

I will lift up my hands in Your name.

5My [b]soul [my life, my very self] is satisfied as with marrow and fatness,

And my mouth offers praises [to You] with joyful lips.

6When I remember You on my bed,

I meditate and thoughtfully focus on You in the night watches,

7For You have been my help,

And in the shadow of Your wings [where I am always protected] I sing for joy.

8My [c]soul [my life, my very self] clings to You;

Your right hand upholds me.

9But those who seek my life to destroy it

Will [be destroyed and] go into the depths of the earth [into the underworld].

10They will be given over to the power of the sword;

They will be a prey for foxes.

11But the king will rejoice in God;

Everyone who swears by Him [honoring the true God, acknowledging His authority and majesty] will glory,

For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.

[a] 1 See note 42:1.
[b] 5 See note 42:1.
[c] 8 See note 42:1.
