Psalm 63
Douay-Rheims Bible

Thirsting for God

(2 Samuel 16:1-4)

1{62:1}A psalm of David while he was in the desert of Edom. [2] O God, my God, to thee do I watch at break of day. For thee my soul hath thirsted; for thee my flesh, O how many ways!

2{62:3}In a desert land, and where there is no way, and no water: so in the sanctuary have I come before thee, to see thy power and thy glory.

3{62:4}For thy mercy is better than lives: thee my lips will praise.

4{62:5}Thus will I bless thee all my life long: and in thy name I will lift up my hands.

5{62:6}Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness: and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips.

6{62:7}If I have remembered thee upon my bed, I will meditate on thee in the morning:

7{62:8}Because thou hast been my helper. And I will rejoice under the cover of thy wings:

8{62:9}My soul hath stuck close to thee: thy right hand hath received me.

9{62:10}But they have sought my soul in vain, they shall go into the lower parts of the earth:

10{62:11}They shall be delivered into the hands of the sword, they shall be the portions of foxes.

11{62:12}But the king shall rejoice in God, all they shall be praised that swear by him: because the mouth is stopped of them that speak wicked things.
