Psalm 63
New American Standard Bible►► 

The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in God.

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

1God, You are my God; I shall be watching for You;

My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You,

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

2So have I seen You in the sanctuary,

To see Your power and glory.

3Because Your [b]favor is better than life,

My lips will praise You.

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

I will lift up my hands in Your name.

5My soul is satisfied as with fat and fatness,

And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.

6When I remember You on my bed,

I meditate on You in the night watches,

7For You have been my help,

And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.

8My soul clings [c]to You;

Your right hand takes hold of me.

9But those who seek my [d]life to destroy it,

Will go into the [e]depths of the earth.

10[f]They will be [g]turned over to the power of the sword;

They will be a [h]prey for foxes.

11But the king will rejoice in God;

Everyone who swears by Him will boast,

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

[c] 8 Lit after
